Balloon Museum Recruiting New Volunteers

The Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum is offering a new volunteer orientation and training session on Monday, May 2, 10am-4pm, and invites those interested in serving as greeters, tour guides, and education assistants to attend the session.

"Our visitation has increased nearly 20 percent since last year," said Paul Garver, Balloon Museum Manager, "which means we have lots of new opportunities for people to help our guests have an engaging and educational experience."

According to Garver, people don't need prior experience with ballooning to serve as a volunteer. "We look for people who enjoy learning, and who also enjoy sharing their knowledge with our many guests -- the residents, students, and tourists of Albuquerque."

Anyone interested in learning more and signing up for the orientation and training session may contact Laurie Magovern, Balloon Museum Educator, by calling 768-6034 or emailing lmagovern@cabq.gov.

Come Out and Volunteer

The Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival is gearing up for its record-setting 10th year. The festival’s 2012 anniversary will be (appropriately enough) a 10-day event. Organizers are looking for an army of volunteers to help out. Among the positions that need to be filled are assistant volunteer coordinator, advisory committee, Pride Parade and booth volunteers, marketing and community outreach, distribution, fund-raising, and all door/ticketing shifts at the festival itself. Perks include parties, prizes and free movies (natch). If you’re interested in signing up or would like more info, please contact Shannon Peterson at volunteer@closetcinema.org or by phone at 450-6520.

They Made It Easy for Us to Do Good Things

In the news business (*puffs cigar, leans back in chair, puts feet on desk), I often find myself saying things like, "Seems like there should be some kind of group that could ... ". Then, months later, I'll find out there's a nonprofit in the state that fills exactly that need.

Well, the Center for Nonprofit Excellence in New Mexico has gone a step further. It's compiled a comprehensive online list of New Mexican nonprofits.

The directory delivers contact information, website links, region and areas served, budget, staff size, etc.

"An estimated 6,000 nonprofits in New Mexico are conducting essential work," writes the center in a news release. These groups build "health care clinics, food banks, domestic violence shelters, job skill training programs, affordable housing, childcare, youth mentoring programs, after-school programs, arts and cultural centers, community gardens, and animal rescue and adoption sites."

The online list should make it easier for people to volunteer or make donations. You can use the search tool to find nonprofits that work in your corner of the state or on issues you care about. Plus, the center says, the nonprofits can find each other and collaborate.

Fantastic.
