Aki Matsuri Volunteer

The Eastside Nihon Matsuri Association (ENMA) is looking for volunteers to help out at this year’s Aki Matsuri (“Fall Festival”), a 2-day program of Japanese cultural, educational, and fun events for all age groups, to celebrate Japan’s rich cultural heritage.

We are currently recruiting volunteers for this year’s festival on September 10th (Fri; Set-up), 11th (Sat), and 12th (Sun), 2010 at Bellevue College.
This is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the Japanese culture and meet people from the Japanese/Japanese American communities.

In addition, we also provide volunteer credits for middle school and high school volunteers.
