The Executive Team is responsible for ensuring that The Berkeley Project achieves its goals of providing high-impact community service. In order to realize these goals, we regularly communicate with the city of Berkeley, UC Berkeley administrators, and service organizations at Cal and beyond. In addition to leading weekly meetings and planning out the logistics for Berkeley Project Day, we are also in charge of guiding each committee and make sure that we reach our full potential as a team.
The event planning committee is primarily in charge of all community outreach and event organization. We recruit volunteers and site leaders from organizations both on and off campus through event publication, award applications, and management of social media outlets. In addition, we are responsible for both the events before and after Berkeley Project Day; this includes performances and guest speakers as well as the after event celebration. We are a versatile committee, taking part in almost every aspect of Berkeley Project Day.
We are responsible for managing The Berkeley Project’s budget in part by working with the City of Berkeley and the ASUC, by applying for various grants, and by securing corporate sponsorships. In addition, we seek partnership with local eateries, bakeries, cafes and anyone else willing to help out to ensure our volunteers are fed, entertained, and generally kept happy during their Berkeley Project day experience.
The Marketing committee is responsible for the branding of The Berkeley Project, via online and on campus platforms. Our aim is to create a consistent image of BP that is inviting and to project that to the campus and wider community. Our main tasks include the aesthetics of BP; the design and production of flyers, promotional items, committee and volunteer gear, banners, signboards, etc. The marketing committee works closely with the Recruiting committee in outreach and we are constantly looking for opportunities to raise BP's profile and awareness on and off campus.
The Site Planning Committee is entirely responsible for the acquiring all the worksites for BP volunteers. In constant contact via countless e-mails and phone calls with passionate and energetic city workers and community organizers, Site Planning organizes and manages the site logistics for all BP Days.
The Volunteer Committee serves as the link between the Berkeley Project Core and it's participants. It is responsible for appointing Site Leaders and organizing the entire volunteer workforce. As such, the primary tasks include designing and processing registration forms, allocating groups to sites, and responding to all questions from volunteers. In addition, the Volunteer Committee also runs training sessions and social events to prepare Site Leaders for the event.
The Web Committee's goal is to establish the online presence of The Berkeley Project. Web's main tasks can be generalized into two categories: design (coding and stylizing the website's layout) and development (programming features that will enhance the user experience for volunteers and committee members).
