I am the newest marketing and communications volunteer at the Vancouver International Children's Festival, so I still have a lot to learn.
During my second shift I distributed festival brochures with another volunteer and it was intense! We drove all over the city trying to locate each destination and Peggy guided me with directions along the way. We thought her phone might die, but we somehow survived with 2% battery. Trust me, Google Maps was essential. I never realized how many streets our city is made up of until that day.
In general everyone at VICF has been very welcoming and I have already learned a lot about what happens behind the scenes when planning a major event!
