We're asking that volunteers commit to 2 days (does not need to be consecutive days), and join us for a short training session prior to the event.
Please keep in mind that your first priority as volunteer is to be at your designated "online area" and that this may mean that you will miss out on some sessions, but with a virtual event comes an opportunity to also re-watch any missed sessions. We will also do our best to make sure you have free time depending on the number of volunteers.
Please note: This opportunity is open to AlumniGEM and other non-team members only. This opportunity is not available to current team members or family members of team members.
