INFORMATION FOR DAY-OF VOLUNTEERS:

We have a host of volunteer needs on the days of the event.  Some of those needs include:

Event Services:  Helping with behind-the-scenes event needs, including registration, catering setup/cleanup, helping exhibitors with load in/out, and other needs that do not focus on direct interaction with event attendees.
Traffic Director:   You will assist with loading and unloading the buses, directing traffic throughout the event, and answering attendee questions.
Mind Trekkers Demonstration Leader:  No STEM Experience necessary!  Lead your own hands-on demonstration for event attendees!  You will be given a lesson plan that has everything you need to know to successfully lead the demonstration.  ((note: these positions will be first filled by service-learning students.))

CLICK HERE to register as a day-of volunteer! Unless you are a CPCC student seeking service-learning hours: you should register through the Service-Learning Department: https://www.cpcc.edu/service-learning  (don't fill out this form!)
