We also need folks who love to talk to spread the word by staffing a booth at neighborhood festivals, or by taking flyers and information packets and talking to friends, neighbors, and local businesses and groups.

Part of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership’s mission is to engage with residents of communities connected by the trail. One way we do this is through festivals and other special events that bring people together to celebrate progress made so far, and garner support for the work ahead.
We need volunteers to help with staging these events. Volunteer opportunities include but not limited to:
- Set up
- Take down
- Staff the merchandise booth
- Assist with registration
Volunteering is a great way to help out, and you can participate in some of the most exciting events happening on the Atlanta BeltLine. Sign via HOA up to get started!

Help Fulfill the Atlanta BeltLine Vision
The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership (ABP) and Hands On Atlanta (HOA) have created a strategic partnership that makes HOA the central location for volunteers to sign up for a wide range of Atlanta BeltLine volunteer opportunities. The new partnership also connects volunteers with opportunities to give their time through additional community-based organizations that HOA works with in neighborhoods along the Atlanta BeltLine corridor.
