Boosterthon is a high energy, fun, and very relational job.
Boosterthon Program Assistant Phoenix (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 16, 2016
A typical day at Boosterthon starts when you walk out your front door. You first have to drive to the school that you are helping fundraise for. When you get to the school, you meet up with your team members and then enter the school. Next you sign in at the office and go to your room that you are setting up to teach the students. Next you set up and get prepared for all the students that are going to arrive. We then lead what we call "huddles". Huddles are a way to get a whole grade(s) in the same room and teach them Boosterthons character lessons. Throughout those huddles you are bagging prizes that students have earned from their pledging. Your focus is on the students and creating a exciting and fun environment where they will get pumped up to want to help their school. If you are not doing huddles then you are doing classroom visits. That is where you and your team visit each class individually to accomplish the same things as a huddle do. After a week and a half of doing that, we hold a fun run for the students. These are the hardest part of the job. Even though they are very rewarding, they are very difficult because they are so exhausting. You get to the school early to set up the tracks, sound system, etc. After it is all set up then there are multiple runs that you have to hold for the students. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching the students have the best time of their lives.
Free lunches (on certain days) and creating great relationships.
Long days and a exhausting job.
