Be a part of the Art: Become a Sing for Hope Project Leader

Another great way to get involved with Sing for Hope is by volunteering as a Project Leader. Whether or not you are an artist, you can help lead programs and create opportunities to bring art to those who otherwise might not have access. SFH Project Leaders make it possible for us to bring to life our mission of “art for all.” By leading Sing for Hope’s programming at hospitals, veterans centers, community organizations and more, Project Leaders provide a critical link between our Volunteer Artists (VA) and on-site staff at partner organizations, and ensure high-quality experiences for all involved. Project Leaders are vital to Sing for Hope’s ability to bring the arts to as many New Yorkers as possible.

As a Project Leader we ask you to:

• Collaborate with Sing for Hope staff to plan program content for upcoming sessions
• Coordinate Sing for Hope programs at our partner sites, welcome and guide Volunteer Artists,
and set a warm and positive tone throughout each program
• Serve as point of contact for VAs and site staff during programs, problem-solving as necessary
• Communicate with Sing for Hope as needed during and following programs
• Report back by sharing photos, quotes, and metrics with Sing for Hope staff via online surveys/email

As a Project Leader, you will:

• Commit to a minimum of 2 hours of service a month for 6 months
• Complete the SFH Project Leader Training module (half day workshop)
• Attend your pre-determined scheduled programs (SFH programs take place during the daytime,
evenings, or on weekends)

As a Project Leader, you’ll benefit by:

• Gaining invaluable, on-the-ground leadership experience
Building your resume
Meeting an amazing array of terrific Volunteer Artists
Receiving ongoing feedback, support, and professional development
Helping uplift individuals and communities

Qualifications

• Must be 18 or older
Strong public speaking, facilitation, and communication skills
Personable, flexible, proactive, and comfortable solving problems as needed
Basic technology skills (i.e. photography on camera or smartphone, email, online survey)
Artistic ability is a plus, but not required
Background check as required by partner organizations
