Teen Volunteer FAQ


When and where do I check in?

You must sign in at the Volunteer Tent located near Starbucks on Main Street in Town Square.  Please allow for time to get through traffic, park your car/be dropped off and get to the Volunteer Tent in order to sign in and report to your designated work area on time.  The event is very popular so please allow time to make your way through the crowds. 


Where do I park or get dropped off?

There are two parking garages at Southlake Town Center; the West Garage at 351 State Street is nearer the Volunteer Tent.

Drop off:  Carroll Ave and Main Street near The Container Store.


What should I wear?

Please dress appropriately.  No short shorts, midriff-baring tops or muscle shirts.  If you are helping with set up or clean up, please wear old clothes and closed-toe shoes. Please dress appropriately for the weather.  Art in the Square goes on rain or shine, so check the forecast and be prepared. You cannot leave your shift if it rains.


Your main activity will be face painting, along with other arts and crafts.  Artistic skills are not required, but a willing and cooperative attitude IS required. Adults will be there to guide you and show you how to help.

Do I get to take a break?

If you are working in THE ZONE at the Inflatables, Rock Wall, or Bungee Jump areas, you will be working a longer shift and will get a 30 minute break.


Do I need to bring anything with me?

Protect yourself from the sun:  bring sunscreen and a hat. If rain is in the forecast, bring a rain jacket and an umbrella. Bottled water will be provided.  Bring a snack or money for Food Tickets.  

MOST IMPORTANT:  BRING YOUR TIME CARD TO RECEIVE YOUR COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS!!
