Operations & Events

Operations and Events Volunteers assist with the ongoing administration of the Sultana Education Foundation as well as special events held at the Foundation’s new Education Center in Chestertown. Administrative responsibilities generally include staffing the Foundation’s reception desk, giving tours of the Education Center, and assisting with various administrative duties.   Special events responsibilities include assisting with “First Friday” open-houses, evening lectures, and other community events.   While no previous experience is required, we do welcome volunteers who have administrative experience, are comfortable talking to visitors, and are generally game to help with what is going on that day.
