The We Are Girls Conference is in need of volunteers in the following capacities:

 

PLEASE ENSURE THAT THE TIMES OF THE VOLUNTEER POSITIONS YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR DO NOT OVERLAP BY MORE THAN 15 MINUTES.

 

Workshop Assistant – from 9:45am to 3:15pm. This is an all day position that cannot be split into shifts. Workshop assistants assist the speakers with their workshops. They introduce the speaker, provide support to girls attending the breakout session, and administer the conference evaluations. THIS POSITION IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR ADULT WOMEN ONLY.

Registration – from 7:30am to 10:30am. These volunteers check-in all of the attendees, give them the necessary materials, and direct attendees as needed.

Information Desk – from 7:30am to 11:45am AND/OR 11:30am to 3:30pm. These volunteers will be stationed in a central location to answer questions, provide support to conference attendees, and will be responsible for going to each classroom after every breakout session and collecting evaluations.

Speaker Check-in – from 8:00am to 11:45am AND/OR 11:30 to 3:15pm. These volunteers will be stationed at a table where the workshop providers can check-in, ask questions, and fill out a survey about their experience.

Lunch – from 10:15am to 2pm. These volunteers serve our boxed lunches to the attendees. They will ensure that all speakers receive lunch and that the lunch process runs smoothly.

Hospitality – from 7:30am to 11:45am AND/OR 11:30 to 2:45pm. These volunteers will help keep our hospitality room neat and clean. They will also ensure that all speakers and volunteers receive lunch.

Audio-Visual Support – from 9:30am to 2:15pm. We need support this year from individuals familiar with projectors/laptops who feel comfortable troubleshooting any issues that the speakers encounter while hooking up their technology before their sessions.

SPIRIT SQUAD/Directional Assistance – from 7:30am to 11:45am AND/OR 11:30 to 3:15pm. These volunteers are in charge of bringing joy, energy, and enthusiasm to the conference! They will have a large role at the conference's kick-off rally, and these volunteers shouldn't be shy about getting on stage and getting people pumped! Throughout the day you'll engage with girls, lead chants, answer any questions that the attendees have, and help folks find their way to workshop sessions.

 - Gym and Performing Arts Center Assistant – from 7:30am to 11:45am AND/OR 11:30 to 3:15pm. The PAC is going to be a busy place throughout the day. We need people help administer evaluations and ensure that the featured conference speakers have everything that they need. THIS POSITION IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR WOMEN.

GIRLS Carnival – from 10:30am to 2:15pm. The GIRLS Carnival is going to be a bustling and lively place during lunch! After people have finished their lunches, they will come up to the gym to participate in games and activities before their next session starts. Volunteers will help lead games and stations. High school students are encouraged to volunteer in this role, however, it's open to everyone!

Facepainting – from 10:30am to 2:15pm. Facepainting will be taking place in the gym during the GIRLS Carnival and it is so POPULAR. This year we are going the extra mile to ensure that all girls that would like their faces painted have that opportunity. Get ready to get creative! If you are interested in facepainting, PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER FOR BOTH GIRLS CARNIVAL AND FACEPAINTING.

Photographers – from 7:30am to 3:30pm. This is an all day position that cannot be split into shifts. Volunteer photographers are responsible for capturing all of the magic that happens at We Are Girls. Photography volunteers are responsible for bringing and using their own cameras (no phone cameras). In order to be confirmed as a photography volunteer, YOU MUST EMAIL RELEVANT LINKS TO/EXAMPLES OF YOUR PREVIOUS WORK TO miranda@girlsempowermentnetwork.org FOR REVIEW.

Event Set-Up – this opportunity will take place on Friday, November 16th (5-8pm) and will involve helping Girls Empowerment Network set up Anderson High School. This means unloading supplies, hanging signs, etc. THIS POSITION DOES NOT REQUIRE YOU TO ATTEND THE VOLUNTEER TRAINING.

Volunteer Night – this opportunity is scheduled for Tuesday, October 22nd from 6pm-8pm and Wednesday, November 13th from 6-8pm at the Girls Empowerment Network office (2801 S IH 35, Austin, TX, 78704).
