Volunteer opportunities

Vegan in San Diego is currently in need of a Volunteer Coordinator to help with First Friday Night Market and San Diego Vegan Festival. This volunteer will work closely with the VSD Board of Directors to outline volunteer needs, coordinate schedules, set up training, and may be on site to direct volunteers. There is room for evolution and growth for this position, so let’s talk about ideas if you are interested.

First Friday Night Market is Vegan in San Diego’s monthly all-vegan party, currently held at Grossmont Shopping Center in La Mesa. VSD is seeking volunteers to help with set-up (1:00pm to 5:00pm) and take-down (8:30pm to 10:00pm) of the event.

San Diego Vegan Festival is Vegan in San Diego’s full-scale vegfest, held in mid-April each year. The 2024 festival is scheduled for Saturday, April 13, 2024, at the County of San Diego’s Waterfront Park in Downtown San Diego. VSD is seeking volunteers to help with set-up, take-down, and during the event. The volunteer time slots are still being determined and will be based on the event run time. 

Vegan in San Diego’s list and map of San Diego County vegan options is always in development. Please reach out if you are interested in helping us keep these resources update! 

We can always use assistance with photography and videography, as well as monitoring social media during events.

We are working on ways to make our events more eco-friendly and reduce waste. We will be seeking volunteer to help attendees understand our trash, recycling, composting systems. There is lots of room for development here, and we would appreciate your ideas.
