Coach - Serve as a "business mentor" to a table of young adults (16-24) and help guide them through the day. Each table will consist of 9 young adults. As the business mentor we look to you to help the students become acclimated, guide them through the scheduled interactive activities and help them navigate through the day. A volunteer meeting will be held to walk through the event program with business mentors and answer any questions. This event generally yields more than 200 youth participants. We look for 25-30 volunteers. The time commitment for our business mentors is 8:00-3:00 pm.
Event Support Staff – Provide logistical assistance throughout the day to help keep the event running smoothly (i.e registration assistance, directional guidance, timekeeping etc.)
