Volunteer

The Birmingham International Street Fair is led by the Birmingham Multicultural Association and has no paid staff. All efforts are shaped by volunteers who serve on various committees. These committees help bring life to our programs and are the driving force behind the Street Fair. Want to lend your voice to the mix and have your ideas become a part of the plans? Email bhamintlstreetfair@gmail.com and tell us how you would like to be involved.

Committees:

Administration/Logistics – this is the behind the scenes work that shapes the Fair and makes it work–everything from booth location, to security to information to first aid!

Education– get non-profits, businesses and other groups involved to help provide information on culture, economics, health, human rights and anything that sheds light on other cultures/ countries.

Outreach – Help put up fliers, talk to neighborhood associations and businesses. Anything that helps build awareness.
