Call for volunteers (opportunidades de ser voluntario)! If you or anyone you know are interested in rewarding volunteer opportunities, MVLA is the place for you. Some of our major events each year such as The Annual Latino Festival and Gala, can use a strong group of vibrant and creative thinking individuals who can work well in a team driven environment. You may volunteer on our Events committee for a single event or all if you wish! These exciting events will consist of an itinerary of fun filled entertainment for all ages and require diligent effort to make this all happen "flawlessly". Whether you have a lot or very little experience working on committees, we still value any ideas your are able to bring to the table. Committee work envolves general event planning, from setting up event venues, seeking artists and new ideas for entertainment and communicating with continuious and prospective donors.
