Volunteer Registration 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for this exciting event! On Tuesday, May 24th over 1,000 high school students from the Cedar Valley will have the opportunity to explore what it means to "be green," and how to engage in a sustainable community. Your assistance is vital to making this a successful event! Below you will find descriptions of the various volunteer opportunities available.

Please carefully read through the following volunteer descriptions as you will be asked to select what you are most interested in on the registration form.

  • Class Guide: (need 45 volunteers)

Class guides will be very important to the success of this event. A class guide will be assigned to each group of 22 students and their teacher and will need to be available for the whole day from 8am-2:45pm. It will be your job to lead this group throughout the day to each of their presentations and assisting the teacher with gathering students together when it's time to move onto the next presentation.

At our "Lunch & Learn" sessions we are asking our guides to provide a short 5 min. lesson on the basics  behind food composting and how we set about to provide a "green"  lunch for this event.  All this information will be provided for you and covered in the training session.  

Class guides will be provided with lunch and an event t-shirt that we will ask you to wear during the day to help spotlight our guides and volunteers. This is a great opportunity for those interested in working with students and engaging in their learning experience.

There will be a class guide training session from 8 - 9 am.              All guides are required to attend training!

  • Presenter and Exhibit Hall Assistant: (need 10-14 volunteers)

Presenter and exhibit hall assistants will perform a variety of simple tasks that will vary greatly depending on who they are assisting. This could be anything from helping with life jackets out at kayaking, to scooping ice-cream in exhibit hall. There are no special skills required, heavy lifting or technical expertise needed for these easy jobs.

  • Check-In Booths: (need 4-6 volunteers)

Volunteers will be asked to help at the Presenter, Volunteer, or Teacher check-in booths from 8am to 10am. You are more than welcome to volunteer as a Presenter or Exhibit Hall Assistant or as a Lunch Volunteer if you would like as well.

  • Lunch Volunteer:  (need 8-10 volunteers)

Each student & teacher will take part in the "Lunch & Learn" sessions between 11 am and 1:05pm. Volunteers are needed to stock the food line for participants as they pass through. Volunteers will also be needed to  help with lunches at the hospitality room for Presenters and the other volunteers.

You will receive a free event t-shirt to wear for the day to help attendees recognize the volunteers who are part of the program.
