Brighton Main Streets is made up of volunteers who help to make Brighton a great place to live, work, shop and learn. Whether you’re a longtime friend, new to Brighton, or just new to Main Streets, volunteering is a great way to get to know your neighbors and establish a community.
Volunteers who want to be involved in planning can join specific event committees. We always seek design, marketing/social media, project management, and business-related skills. We also have opportunities for single-day event support, such as setting up tents and staffing registration tables.
Volunteer opportunities for 2023 include:
Preparing for the National Main Streets Conference (coming to Boston in March!)
Supporting a new monthly “shop small” challenge
Helping with spring plantings and clean-up projects
Planning our annual signature event…and much more!
