We love our volunteers!
Uptown Jackson is all about volunteerism, and we can't succeed without your help! We have several volunteer opportunities that can accommodate your interests and amount of free time! Take a moment to fill out the form below and we'll get going!
special event volunteers
Sign up to be added to our Special Event Volunteer List. These volunteers usually work the day of an event for a block of hours. Tasks could include set-up, tear down, serving beverages, or crowd control. Estimated time involved per event: 3-6 hours.
Uptown Jackson's committees are shaped from the National Main Street Center’s Four Point Approach. Read about our committees below. Sign up to be added to one of our committee email lists. Estimated time involved: 1-2 hours each month.
This committee works to encourage appropriate aesthetics in the uptown, such as through appropriate building rehabs, in-fill design and uptown cleanliness. It capitalizes on uptown assets, such as historic buildings and creates an inviting atmosphere through window displays, parking areas, signage, sidewalks, streetlights and landscaping.
economic vitality committee
This committee works to identify new market opportunities for the uptown, find new uses for historic commercial buildings, and stimulate investment in property. It also assists with business expansion, retention and recruitment.
This committee gets everyone working toward the same goal. It builds consensus and cooperation among the groups that have an important stake in the uptown. It also works to recruit volunteers, gives input on organizational structure and helps to build strong committees.
This committee sells the image of Uptown Jackson by marketing the unique characteristics of uptown to shoppers, investors, new businesses and visitors. Our strategy is to promote a positive image through advertising, retail promotion activities, special events, marketing campaigns and bringing more people uptown, which all is carried out by the committee and other volunteers.
