Are you interested in helping inspire and empower middle school girls to pursue science and math careers? We could use your help! We are looking for volunteers to help out at the third Expanding Your Horizons - Chicago conference on Saturday, March 28th at UIC. EYH Chicago is a one-day conference where 200 middle school girls participate in hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math workshops. It is an exciting event for both the girls and volunteers, and we hope you will help us make this year’s conference a success! More information about the conference can be found on our website at https://sites.google.com/site/eyhchicago/.
We will need volunteers from approximately 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., but not all volunteer jobs have to last all day. Example positions include helping with registration, setting up and assisting workshop leaders, ushering participants between locations, distributing lunch, and cleaning up facilities. There will be breakfast, lunch, and a reception with food and refreshments for volunteers at the end of the day.
Volunteers will be expected to attend a mandatory orientation session a couple weeks before the conference at the UIC west campus. The dates for training this year are March 3, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. or March 7, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. We are trying to recruit around 50 volunteers to help the conference day run smoothly. Are you interested? Do you know somebody who might be interested? The volunteer registration form can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/eyhchicago/home/getinvolved/volunteer-sign-up.
