Volunteers need 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 before, so we want to make the a good impression. Energized and engaged volunteers make the event fun for everyone, including the staff! Feel free to ask the students how the workshop was and engage them in discussion.
You are made aware of your volunteer assignment at least one week prior to the event. Complete directions including where to go, how to check-in prior to your assignment and how the event is run, are included.
Every volunteer must check-in at the volunteer check-in location (DUC 236) at some point prior to their assignment. Check-in will be open beginning at 7 a.m.
NOTE: Attendees pay $40 each to attend this event and 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 preset schedule. If you are unable to volunteer, please try to provide a week notice or find a replacement. We want to provide a seamless event and do so by being as prepared as possible.
Two-Deep Policy (for minors)
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 so we follow university policy. If you sit in on a workshop, you are not necessarily the workshop assistant unless the presenter had asked for one. You are there as only the second adult.
Selected volunteers will receive a complimentary lunch and a t-shirt. You may specify that you want vegetarian, non-vegetarian or a custom veg/non-veg lunch-if you have dietary restrictions.
Lunch is from 11-11:45 a.m. in the Dreyfus University Laird room as well as in room DUC 235 (kitchenette) for the presenters and volunteers. You may use DUC 235 to eat.
