Join a listserv of night-of volunteers who can sign up to help out with anything from film screenings of our vendor created productions, to theatrical performances to awards ceremonies. Events happen during and after regular business hours.

Help plan quarterly community forums about different topics of homelessness, such as mental health and criminal justice. The forum committee meets on Wednesday evenings.

The planning committee meets in the evenings approximately once weekly over the phone with in person meetings closer to the event. More details here: streetsensemedia.org/celebration
