Youth Volunteer Info
The Irish Fest youth volunteers are the future of Irish Fest, and the organization encourages kids of all ages to participate. We place volunteers in all different areas of the festival to work 3-4 hour shifts. Past jobs have included helping with the parade, performing in the Cultural area, helping with children's activities and greeting our guests.
Youth between the ages of 13-17 can be placed in a job without a parent. Youth under 13 need to be with a parent or adult friend. Families with young children are invited to participate in a special program where they can work together in a fun, child-oriented activity for a special 3 hour shift. All volunteers will receive tickets for the Thursday night Hooley, a participant pass and food coupons.
Anyone under the age of 18 who volunteers at the festival will need to have a permission slip. Fill out the permission slip and mail it to the Irish Fest office at 1532 Wauwatosa Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53213. Click to download: 2015 Youth Permission Form.
