We have many opportunities for you to volunteer and spread the word about Northwest Vista College!

Last year, we had approximately 500 attendees to this event and we are expecting more this year!

Volunteer Responsibilities

Department Volunteers

Your area can:

  • Sponsor a specific location from a list provided,
  • Request an exhibitor table, or
  • Send a proposal for an activity you would like to do for the event.

Proposals or exhibitor table requests should be sent to the Event Coordinator, Lisa McDaniel, at lmcdaniel5@alamo.edu no later than Monday, October 1, 2018. If you require help with a budget, please include that in your request. There is no guarantee that we can provide financial help.

You will be provided training before the event on how to perform the duties at your activity, as well as emergency procedures and customer service expectations.

Help to set up that area and your table

Schedule departmental volunteers to help with the activity and to hand out information, candy, and/or toys (candy and toys are provided by NVC).

So, why volunteer?

NVC could not have successful events without volunteers like you!

To have the best event possible, we need faculty, staff and students to show the community our great campus.

Also, according to Psychology Today, some reasons you should volunteer include:

  1. Volunteers live longer and are healthier.
  2. Volunteering establishes strong relationships.
  3. Volunteering is good for your career.
  4. Volunteering is good for society.
  5. Volunteering gives you a sense of purpose.
