The next World Languages Day will take place on Thursday, November 14, 2013. If you are interested in volunteering at this event, please email Wendy Johnson at wsjohnso@wisc.edu



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 be 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!

Note to registered volunteers: Intro/info sessions are now scheduled for Wednesday, November 6th, 6:30-7:15pm , and Thursday, November 7th, 3:15-4:00pm in Union South. Please plan to attend one of the sessions; check the "Today in the Union" board for room information upon arrival.
