Set-Up Volunteers ALL SHIFTS FILLED (4) (7:30 am-11:00 am) This is for early birds! We need three people to help the lead set-up person with unloading, setting up the information booths (tables, chairs, boxes etc.) and assisting presenting organizations with set up.

Information Booth Representatives (3 per shift, per location) (Shift 1: 10:30 am-1:30 pm – Shift 2: 1:00 pm- 4:30 pm ALL SHIFTS FILLED) This position is rewarding in many ways.

Roving Ambassadors ALL SHIFTS FILLED (2 per shift) (Shift 1: 10:30 am-1:30 pm – Shift 2: 1:00 pm- 4:30 pm) This position is kind of like an informational walkabout! You will answer questions, keep an eye out for everyone’s safety, and provide assistance in a welcoming way.
