What does a volunteer do?
The majority of our volunteers assist the day of the conference in three main capacities: Administration Volunteer, Workshop Leader or Topical Leader. An Administration Volunteer helps us to check-in the students when they arrive, coordinate lunch, help shuttle students from the different buildings and classrooms, and generally assists with behind-the-scenes activities. A Workshop Leader has a class of students, ranging in size from 10 - 20 and they lead a discussion on various topics pertaining to the conference.
The Workshop Leader
has the flexibility to choose discussion topics that interest him/her and to allow the students to take the discussion where they would like. The Topical Leader also has a class of students ranging in size from 15 - 25 and leads a seminar on a specific issue pertaining to the conference. This is much more structured than the Workshops and while topical do contain discussion, the discussion is centralized around a presented topic.
In addition to day-of volunteers, we are always looking for volunteers to help us year-round in many capacities:
- Grant Writing
- Speaker/Presenter Coordinator
- Website Administrator
- Hotel/Facility Coordinator
- Curriculum Coordinator
- Resources and Materials Development Coordinator
- Public Relations Coordinator
