Thursday Gatherings & Café Nights don’t just happen on their own. Besides the Venture Café staff, a team of eight to twelve volunteers help produce the magic. If you like telling the story through the creation of digital content, or greeting people as they visit, or serving up a drink to a thirsty innovator, we want to talk to you. Here are some brief descriptions of our ambassador roles:

Our bartenders serve beer and wine to gathering attendees. The job is to maintain a safe drinking environment (only 3 beers per guest- keep track!), checking for nametags and tag stamps before serving guests, and helping to set up and/or keep up the bar area. Shifts range from 1 hour – 2.5 hours.

Our greeters welcome all guests at the check in tables, engage with newcomers to help them orient themselves, help troubleshoot kiosk & nametag printer issues, and check IDs & stamp nametags of people over 21. Shifts are 1.5 hours.

Our photographers snap photos of breakout sessions and general capturing of the atmosphere, they also try to get shots of people engaging in conversations as well as posed pictures. We ask that the photos be uploaded to Venture Cafe’s google drive by the following Monday, so we can upload them to the Venture Cafe Facebook page. Shifts are 2.5 hours.

Come to a volunteer orientation!


We love interns. Interns have passion, smarts, and a desire to create a body of work that can help launch their career. We currently have an opening for interns. Check it out. Maybe you can join the team.
