The Role of Volunteers
Volunteers are essential in making this event run smoothly! Volunteers help to greet and check in high school students and teachers as they arrive; direct the direct WLD participants to their sessions; set up and break down rooms; pick up, set up and trouble-shoot problems with audio-visual equipoment; and aid session presenters.
Individuals interested in volunteering must commit to working at least one shift. Shift times are 7:45-9:45am, 9:40am-12:15pm, and 12:10-2:00pm.
We are looking for volunteers who are enthusiastic and dependable. Volunteers can be students, faculty or staff from the University, or members of the community. All volunteers must at least 18 years of age. Groups are more than welcome, but we ask that members register to volunteer as individuals. Volunteer recruitment usually falls from mid-September to mid-October.
Note: Volunteers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and spots are filled quickly!
