Site leaders and volunteers for set-up/check in can be students, staff, or faculty. Projects will span various issue areas. 

Site leaders responsibilities:

  • Be available for at least 3.5 hours on Saturday January 13th  (times will be confirmed depending on which of our service projects site leads are assigned to, most projects will take place in the morning and return to campus around noon, some projects will run until mid-afternoon and have include a lunch break)

Further, instruction and details will be provided to all volunteers who sign up to be site leaders.

Set up volunteers will help to hang signs and arrange tables as well as staffing our registration tables which includes greeting volunteers, scanning their IDs, and directing them where to find their site leaders and service project team.

Are you comfortable to lead an outdoor project that may require rain gear/boots and doing landscaping or gardening work?
Because nearly all projects are not within walking distance of campus, most of our site leaders will need to be certified to drive a Motorpool 12 passenger van. Video and quiz available here:
Are you a cyclist/would you be comfortable to lead a group in biking to a service project? Note: We only bike to projects that are 2 miles from campus or less and ask that folks know bike hand signals and wear helmets and closed toe shoes for safety.
Please let us know any other information that would be helpful such as time limitations that don't fit within the above options.
