Each volunteer is asked to be timely, professional, committed, and have a positive attitude while representing the university on behalf of Continuing Education and Outreach. Many attendees have never visited UW-Stevens Point or any university environment before, so we want to make the a good impression and have it be a positive experience. Energized and engaged volunteers make the event fun for everyone involved, including the event staff!
A volunteer assignment schedule is prepared ahead of time. Presenters are told how many volunteers will be assisting them and we notify each escort of their volunteering assignment and location. Please be aware that attendees pay $40 per person to attend this event and they expect it to run as advertised. Should you not be able to volunteer, and not show up, you will cause a significant disruption in our pre-determined schedule. If you are unable to volunteer, please try to provide us with a week notice. We want to provide a seamless event and do so by being as prepared as possible.
University Policy, Volunteer Agreement and Liability
This event is catered to minors, so university policy requires a two-deep policy (two adults in any room with minors). For every presenter without a co-presenter, an escort or volunteer will be placed in the workshop so that no adult is presenting alone. If you are an escort, you may be asked to sit in on the workshop, not volunteer as an assistant, just so we can follow university policy.
Volunteers working 3 or more hours will be provided with a complimentary lunch and t-shirt. When signing up, please indicate your t-shirt size and if you want a lunch.
Lunch will be served from 11-11:45 a.m. in the Dreyfus University Laird room as well as in room DUC 235 (kitchenette).
