Football Camp for the Stars, Event Subcommittee Member
The Football Camp for the Stars (FCFTS) is especially for athletes with Down syndrome who love football. With instruction from NFL football players, along with NFL, college and prep school coaches, athletes learn the fundamentals that put them in the middle of the action, resulting in an authentic football experience.
We are looking for high energy, self-motivated professionals with an affinity for sports, event planning and a desire to provide opportunities for the special needs community to join our team as an Event Subcommittee Member (ESM). This volunteer role will be an integral part of the organization’s event and fundraising efforts. Participation allows its members to gain hands-on experience working side by side with the FCFTS Foundation Team.
Members must attend regular subcommittee planning meetings and, as necessary, FCFTS board meetings.
The goals for this group will be:
1. Ideate, plan and execute one (1) fundraising event each fiscal year, with a goal of $25K net.
2. Attend FCFTS annual camp in June.
3. Attend the FCFTS wrap-up event in June/July.
As a ESM, you will receive access to networking and volunteer opportunities, experience planning and executing large events, and access to FCFTS events and celebrations, including on-field recognition at a 49ers game, 49ers private practice viewing and the Madden/Mariucci Bocce Ball Tournament.
