Volunteer to Host
Hosting is such an enjoyable and rewarding experience that most of our volunteers return year after year. It is also a great way to get a free pass to Education Week! Beginning March 28, select the "Hosting Application" link below to submit an application.
Education Week hosts who fill a volunteer shift on four consecutive days receive a name badge for free admission to classes on Monday through Friday. You can attend classes any time except during your assigned shifts.
Here are the available shifts (actual shift assignments may vary):
- Tuesday through Friday:
- 8:00–11:45 a.m.
- 11:30 a.m.–3:15 p.m.
- 2:45–6:15 p.m.
- 6:00–9:30 p.m.
- 8:00 a.m.–12:15 p.m.
- Noon–4:15 p.m.
Common tasks and expectations of hosting volunteers:
- Check name badges at the door of your assigned class.
- Count the number of students attending each lecture.
- Keep the flow of students moving smoothly before and after class.
- Uphold BYU Education Week dress standards and policies.
- While volunteering, women wear skirts or dresses, men wear shirts and ties.
- Help students enjoy their experience at Education Week.
We do our best to schedule your shift based on the information you provide. Since we are unable to anticipate the number of applications we will receive, we may not be able to accept all who apply. Cancellations are problematic, so please apply only if you are confident that you will be able to serve. Hosts must be age 18 or older by August 20, 2018. If you have questions, please call 801-422-6214.
The mandatory Saturday Host Training Meeting (August 18, 10:00 a.m., 3220–3224 WSC) will focus on meeting your hosting team, picking up your hosting materials and name badge, and learning how your building host would like you to complete your specific assignment (checking badges, taking attendance, etc.). Refreshments will be served.
Beginning March 28, this Hosting Application link will be available. After you complete it, you will be contacted by email within two weeks. If you do not receive our email by then, please call 801-422-6214 to verify that we received your application.
We appreciate the service of our hosting staff, who do so much to make Education Week a pleasant experience for all who attend.
