Missouri City, Texas municipal programs and office are looking for volunteers for the Third Annual Black History Month Celebration event, the READ Program, office work, and online. Please see below for more details.
Third Annual Black History Month Celebration
Missouri City will celebrate its Third Annual Black History Month Celebration on Saturday, Feb. 11 through a day-long ceremony of music and culture that will pay tribute to the many Fort Bend County African-American leaders and advocates—past, present and future.
READ Program Volunteering
In 2014, At-Large Position 2 Councilmember Chris Preston initiated the City’s READ Program at Glover Elementary by reading to several classrooms and answering questions about City leadership. To expand on the success of the READ program, beginning in 2017, the READ program is expanding to multiple Fort Bend ISD campuses:
- Lantern Lane Elementary
- E.A. Jones Elementary
- Quail Valley Elementary
- Lynn Armstrong Elementary
For all FBISD programs, volunteers need to complete an additional Fort Bend Independent School District criminal background check.
Other upcoming and ongoing volunteer opportunities
- Communications: The City Hall front desk is looking for a friendly face to assist with overall front desk operations. This includes greeting guests, answering phones, logging packages and providing general information. The ideal volunteer would also assist the front desk staff with organization and main lobby upkeep. Lastly, they’d need to be comfortable with occasionally working the front desk solo.
- City Secretary: The Department, who is in charge of recording and organizing all official City records, is in need of a volunteer who can assist with an ongoing organizing project. The volunteer would be needed during regular City Hall hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., any day Monday– Friday, and would work alongside City Secretary staff.
- Website Redesign: City Staff members are preparing to update www.missouricitytx.gov and would like volunteer input and feedback on the project. The City website will receive a revitalized appearance to improve usability and overall functionality. Staff members are in the process of compiling thoughts and ideas from citizens, commercial, municipal and information technology partners that will allow the website to better serve all constituents. The redesign will be more mobile friendly and will feature enhancements that will improve ease of access.
