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.
The shifts below are the days and times where volunteers are needed:
Saturday, April 22 – 7:00am- 12:00pm
Saturday, April 22 – 1:30pm - 5:45pm
Sunday, April 23 – 7:00am - 12:00pm
Sunday, April 23 – 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 will provide an orientation by Zoom two weeks prior to the conference, including instructions on assignments.
