Dear 53rd Annual Juneteenth Jubilee Parade Volunteer, Thank you for being a part of history as Northcott Neighborhood House presents the 53rd Annual Juneteenth Jubilee Parade. This year's theme is "Our History, Our Culture, Our Village," and we want everyone to be involved in Juneteenth because this is an historical holiday for all. Milwaukee is home to one of the longest running Juneteenth Day celebrations in the country. Our parade will be televised live on TMJ4 from 9 AM to 11 AM, and the historic parade route steps off at 14th & Atkinson Ave. and ends at Dr. MLK Jr. Drive & Locust St. This year we are looking for more volunteers to help with the Juneteenth Jubilee Parade. We are requesting a 3-hour minimum of volunteerism. We will need volunteers beginning at 7 AM to assist with the parade line-up and as late at 2 PM to assist with cleaning up along the parade route. We would like to thank you in advance for your participation and we look forward to you joiningus as we celebrate on Wednesday June 19, 2024. Warm regards, Tony A. Kearney, Sr. Northcott Neighborhood House Executive Director & Juneteenth President Description of Requirements & Basic Duties of General Parade Volunteer Must be 18 years or older Answer questions from parade participants and spectators (Don't worry, we will help you with answers to commonly asked questions) Be firm, but friendly. You will help keep the parade route clear of obstacles. For the safety of everyone, volunteers will help maintain the curb line, preventing spectators from moving into the street. Be available for check-in at 7:00 AM until 2:00 PM (if you are on the clean-up team) Be pleasant, helpful and willing to have fun. Most people who attend our parade are well-behaved. So, your job is often not very difficult, meaning you will have more fun. Parade Volunteer Captains Requires walking the entire parade route of 1.4 miles (Approx. 30 min walk) Overseeing a division of approximately 8-10 participating units marching in the parade down Atkinson Ave. and Dr. MLK Jr. Drive. Must be a mature adult due to the need to be able to confront situations which may require the involvement of a mature adult. Reporting time is 7:00 AM and lasts until approximately 1:30 PM depending on place in the line-up (Your shift could end sooner if assigned to units closer to the front of the parade.) We could use as many as 15 individuals in this role.
