Street Team:
We need to spread the word about the Coffee & Tea Festival NYC and need volunteers who are able to distribute promotional cards and posters about the festival in new neighborhoods. If you sign up to be a “Street Team” volunteer we will send you materials to distribute around your community – your workplace, cafes, churches, libraries, restaurants, convenience stores, etc. (anywhere that people will see them). There is no time requirement and distribution activities can be completed whenever and wherever is convenient to you. However, “Street Team” volunteers can earn tickets for their efforts based on the number of locations materials are distributed at.

Sometimes the best pictures and stories are caught by our volunteers and attendees at the festival. Therefore, we need some volunteer photographers to help us capture great festival moments. If you sign up to be a “volunteer photographer,” we ask that you arrive and stay throughout the day to photograph the event. We’re looking for photographers with a different view that will capture our attendees, volunteers, exhibitors, programs, products, etc. Saturday photographers will receive a ticket to the festival on Sunday to enjoy. Sunday photographers will receive a ticket to Pour the Core: Brooklyn. We ask that all photographers send us a link to the photos via Dropbox within a week of the event taking place.

Pick the shift that works best for you!
