If you are NOT planning to attend the WOW Youth Expo as an exhibitor or participant, we need YOU as an event volunteer!  Our 2017 event required 100+ volunteers.  Whether you're available for the entire event or just one hour, we sincerely appreciate your time & support!

Volunteer Areas:

  • General Event Volunteer
  • Mock Interviewer
  • Workforce Readiness Room Activities

Volunteer Time Slots:
  • 8:00am-9:30am (Pre-event)
  • 9:30am-10:30am (Session 1)
  • 10:30am-11:30am (Session 2)
  • 11:30am-12:30pm (Session 3)
  • 9:30am-12:30pm (Full Event) 

General Event Volunteer:  This type of volunteer is flexible and willing to help as needed at one of our event stations such as the Navigator Booth, Snack Bar, Exhibitor Hospitality, Check-In, etc.

Mock Interviewer:  Our interviewers will be conducting up to 15-minute interviews with students who have pre-registered for this part of the event.  Sample interview questions and scoring rubric are provided.  The scoring rubric will be mailed to the student post-event.  Anyone can conduct mock interviews, but we strongly prefer those with HR and/or interviewing experience!

Workforce Readiness Room Activities:  NEW this year!  We will have a room dedicated to activities that help students develop their workforce readiness skills.  If you have a skill or area of expertise that you would like to showcase, we need YOU as a Workforce Readiness volunteer!  Examples of workforce readiness room activities are How To Tie A Tie, Resume Building, Interview Tips and Tricks, Dining Etiquette, Budgeting, W-9 & Other Tax Information, etc.  Any skill or knowledge you think a student should have before graduating high school is welcome in the Workforce Readiness Room! 



"It's going to take a VILLAGE to build the
Workforce of Tomorrow!" -- we REALLY mean that!
