Volunteer to Reduce the Cost of Attending GA

Be a Youth Volunteer at GA!

GA Volunteers offer hours of service in exchange for a paid registration. For youth registrations, volunteers need to give 14 hours of work during General Assembly. Volunteers still have plenty of time to participate in what General Assembly has to offer and it’s a great way to be involved.     Youth serve as volunteers in any number of capacities, including ushers, recycling volunteers, and more, but there is a new opportunity this year we especially wanted to highlight for youth. If you’re comfortable with social media, handy with a camera and interested in helping share General Assembly with the wider UU world, then the new Youth Media Volunteer position is an opportunity you’ll want to consider. As described on the Volunteer website: Youth Media Volunteers *New Position* For youth attendees. Photograph, video record and share Youth Caucus activities through social media. These volunteers will work during Youth Caucus programs (workshop slots and some evenings) and depending on schedules may also cover plenary and other events from a youth perspective. These volunteers will work primarily Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Volunteers should be comfortable with technology and social media. Volunteer applications are now open and are due by March 31st.
