FutbolNet Festival on May 18th

Dear J-1 Interns and Trainees!

We are so pleased to announce the opportunity for J-1 Exchange Visitors to volunteer at the first ever FutbolNet Festival organized by the FC Barcelona Foundation. The FutbolNet Festival will run from 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM on Friday, May 18th at Flushing Meadows Corona Park. This is a great chance to experience the all-American value of volunteerism while socializing with other soccer enthusiasts!

Details of the Volunteering Project:

Over the past 9 months the Barca Foundation has set up a social inclusion sports program in 3 New York City Public Schools, in an attempt to promote values in our youth while creating a dialogue between students and teachers. The festival will be held for the participants in the 9-month pilot program.

The roles of the volunteers will vary from shirt distribution, food and water bottle distribution, game/activity mediators, and field guides.

A training day for all volunteers will be held on Saturday, May 12th, 2018, during which everyone will get their staff shirts, directions to carry out the festival activities and a full description of all roles and tasks. 

It’s important to note that to volunteer for the FutbolNet Festival, you must be available on the following days:

  • Saturday May 12th, 2018: Volunteer Training
  • Friday May 18th, 2018: FutbolNet Festival
