Achieve Your New Year’s Resolution of Helping Others
Does one of your New Year’s resolutions happen to be volunteering? Or maybe you just want to get more involved with the community and help other people. Well, we have a great opportunity to jump on this resolution right away.
The Navigator Volunteer Program is looking for more volunteers to join its ranks. The next training is April 19, 2011. Trainings are only held once a quarter so this is the perfect time to get involved.
It is easy to get started. Just call 602-273-4017 or click here for an online application. Once a staff member receives your application they will give you a call and explain the program to see if it is a good fit for you.
So, what does it take to be an Airport Navigator? A smile and willingness to help others is a great start. Navigators help 100,000 passengers each day by providing directions and assistance. They are the official welcome committee for the state of Arizona!
Being a Navigator is a lot of fun. Every day, Navigators help travelers in need such as a mother traveling with children, an elderly man on his way to meet his granddaughter or a soldier returning home. These stories are incredible and they happen every day at America’s Friendliest Airport™.
In addition to a smile and friendly attitude, Navigators also need:
To be a year round resident of Arizona
To be able to commit to one, four-hour shift per week
To have the stamina to complete four hours of service with one 20 minute break
To be able to pass an FBI screening and qualify for an Airport security badge
