Volunteers

Volunteer info: Find the booth you are volunteering with on the booth map and go directly there on the day of the event. Your booth leader will provide you with your volunteer T-shirt and lunch ticket. Contact your booth leader for more information on what you will be doing and when you should be there. Bring your lunch ticket to the Volunteer booth (by Moore Hall) from 12:30-3pm to receive the lunch that you marked on the volunteer sign-up form. Snacks and water will also be available at the volunteer booth.

Volunteer at EYU! If you enjoy teaching and interacting with children, want more outreach experience, or simply would like to help out with this community event, consider volunteering at EYU! All volunteers must commit to a minimum of 3 hours. If you signed up and are no longer able to make it, send an email to BOTH your booth leader and eyu.ucla@gmail.com as soon as possible; we count each person carefully to make sure all the booths will have enough volunteers. All volunteers will receive a free T-shirt, lunch, water, and snacks on the day of the event. Volunteers will be able to select their top three preferences for volunteering at the booths, so you can pick a place you will enjoy working at!

Booths

Booth Leader Info: The public tends to start arriving before 12pm, so we recommend that you begin setting up your booths at least an hour beforehand. When you arrive, check in at the Volunteer booth located by Moore Hall. You will receive a booth packet with T-shirts and lunch tickets for all your volunteers, as well as any additional supplies that you have not yet received. Be sure to also take a stack of maps for visitors at your booth. Note that there will be a QR code included in your booth packet - please tape this in a prominent location by your booth, as this is part of the “Data Explorers” booth phone app, which will be used to gauge statistics about audience ratings, popularity, and learning from your booth (data will be displayed in real time at their booth).
