You can now support The East Cut Community Benefit District’s mission to improve the livability, economic diversity, and cultural depth of the neighborhood by volunteering with us! If you are interested in making a lasting impact for your current and future neighbors, come work alongside The East Cut CBD staff and volunteers on advancing community-based programs!
Volunteer Opportunities – Spring/Summer 2021
The East Cut is home to incredible spaces, art pieces, plants, and skyline-defining architecture. This spring, The East Cut CBD is creating a series of neighborhood tours based on four different themes: hidden places, public art, Salesforce Park horticulture, and architecture.
>> Neighborhood Tour Researchers
Volunteer researchers will complete the creation of engaging and fascinating tours, telling the stories of the spaces that make and surround The East Cut. Join a community of neighborhood learners and art/plants/open spaces/architecture lovers! Researchers will participate in the creation of 4 tours and work with The East Cut CBD staff and docents on training and walk-shops. Research projects are beginning now (April 2021).
>> Neighborhood Tour Docents
Volunteer docents lead their fellow neighbors and small groups of visitors on learning experiences across the neighborhood and share the fascinating places and stories that make up The East Cut. Join a community of neighborhood learners and art/plants/open spaces/architecture lovers! Docents lead visitors on 90-minute walking tours. One tour per month in the spring and summer. Participate in continuous learning opportunities.
Training for new docents is offered in spring. The Spring 2021 training is open (virtual and in-person).
