Each year, the conference celebrates the spirit of service. Nowhere is that spirit more visible than in the volunteers who make the conference happen by serving as room monitors, directing participants, and helping out in countless other capacities!

We are seeking volunteers, ages 14 and older, to assist with workshops, service-learning projects, registration, set-up, and tear down to join the Conference Service Corps.

The conference relies on hundreds of volunteers in the months leading up to the conference as well as on-site. Your participation in a committee allows you to have a direct hand in programming elements of the conference. It also allows you to witness all your hard work coming together to create a spectacular, engaging event. Committee members receive registration benefits!
