Volunteers Needed For College Basketball Tournament Events

NEWARK– After just two weeks, GoNewark HoopFest has already signed up more than 300 volunteers to staff events when the NCAA Tournament descends on Newark’s Prudential Center from March 23-27.

According to Mayor Cory A. Booker, the campaign, conducted with Gov. Chris Christie’s office, seeks upwards of 1,000 volunteers to make GoNewark HoopFest a world-class experience for hoop fans.  This is the largest number of volunteers ever sought for an event at the Prudential Center – and perhaps Newark as a whole.


Roles including greeters at the various transportation hubs; street teams to direct visitors and distribute maps and guides; concierge teams to staff information tables at area hotels; and FanFest volunteers to work the outdoor games, contests and entertainment events to be held at Championship Plaza.
