Zocalo Public Square



Volunteers will help out at events being held by Zocalo Public Square. Duties include assisting the Field Producer in house management by keeping track of guests as they arrive, reserving seats for special guests, meeting and accomodating the needs of speakers as instructed, survey distribution and whatever else that may be asked of them at that time. Volunteers may also be asked to assist the Program Coordinator at registration by checking off guests as they arrive, directing people to the stand by line, escorting special guests to reserved seating areas, among other tasks. Once the program starts, they may sit and watch until the reception at the end of our programs.

Mission: Zocalo Public Square connects people to ideas and to each other in an open, accessible, non-partisan and broad-minded spirit. Through our web magazine, lectures, panels, screenings, and conferences, Zocalo takes on ideas that enhance our understanding of community--the forces that strengthen or undermine human connectedness and social cohesion. We believe that over specialization and narrowcasting undermine the public square and are committed to welcoming a new, young and diverse generation to the conversation. Established in Los Angeles in 2003, Zocalo roams across L.A., and has traveled to Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco, and as far as Shanghai, Berlin and Guadalajara. In our seven years, we have featured over 800 compelling thinkers and doers from a wide range of fields--politics, governance, humanities, health, economics, education, technology, foreign policy, arts, science and beyond--who explore how we see and relate to one another, be it locally, regionally, nationally, or globally.
