Youth & Adult Conference
April 21st, 2012
We are looking for at least 15 volunteers, to support teens and adults with Down syndrome at our 15th Annual Youth & Adult Conference. Additionally we need 1-2 volunteers with first aid training to be onsite during the day
Volunteer descriptions are as follows:
Workshop Support staff: You will be assigned to a team. You will need to know the whereabouts of those in your workshop at all times. If you have a self advocate in your workshop who needs one to one support or who wanders please be sure someone from the team is aware of this person at all times.
Volunteer Floater: A floater's job is to watch the doors, outdoor break area, and make sure people don't leave the room or building. Floaters support self advocates during breaks to find the restrooms and their way back as well as take individuals to the restroom that may not be able to wait until the break. A floater may also need to man the area outside of the conference rooms where a self advocate may choose to unwind in a less stimulating space.
First Aid Volunteer: This volunteer will have first aid training and will stay in a centralized location in case of an emergency or if a self advocate needs quiet time.
If you are interested in volunteering at the Youth & Adult Conference, please contact Catherine, either by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: (651) 603-0720.
New volunteers will be required to fill out a volunteer information form and have a background check done prior to the conference.
