CAAEYC needs volunteers from the early care and education (ECE) field for the Annual Conference & Expo to serve a 4-hour shift. When you volunteer 4 hours of your time, you can:
- Attend 4 hours of the Conference & Expo for FREE the same day
- Obtain professional growth hours for your service
- Connect with other professionals in the ECE field
Who is eligible to volunteer?
First priority is given to students in the ECE field. We identify students as individuals pursuing an undergraduate degree in ECE or a related field. In addition, priority is given to individuals pursuing a graduate degree and are not fully employed. Generally speaking, administrators, college faculty, center directors and center owners would not be eligible.
The type of volunteer activities include: workshop monitor, registration assistance, bag distribution, exhibitor check-in, helping attendees find their way, etc.
In addition, all participants -- including volunteers -- are responsible for reading and complying with the Health and Safety Protocols for the conference.
The shifts below are the days and times where volunteers are needed:
Saturday, April 30 – 7:00am- 12:00pm
Saturday, April 30 – 1:30pm - 5:45pm
Sunday, May 1 – 7:00am - 12:00pm
Sunday, May 1 – 12:30pm - 4:45pm
We are unable to make any guarantee of date and time. If you commit to volunteering, we expect your full participation. Volunteers are an integral part of the overall conference success and every assignment makes a difference.
Volunteers are responsible for their own food, snacks, transportation arrangements and parking costs. If you are selected as a volunteer, we provide an orientation by telephone two weeks prior to the conference, including instructions on assignments.
