Volunteers

The success of the Hispanic College Institute will rely greatly on the support of campus and community volunteers. The opportunities below are available for individuals to volunteer their time and expertise.

Networking Reception: Tuesday June 20, 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM (approximately 30 volunteers needed)

This networking reception will allow current FHSU students who are serving as Student Leaders for the Institute to network with campus and community members. Volunteers will visit with leads and allow them to practice the social and networking skills they have learned.

Hispanic Stars: Thursday June 22, 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM (approximately 15 volunteers needed)

Hispanic Stars is an opportunity for members of the Hispanic/Latino community to share personal stories about their education and professional lives.

Lunch will be provided.

Issues to Action: Thursday June 22, 11:15 AM - 3:00 PM (6 volunteers needed)

Issues to Action invites teams of student participants to identify an issue and develop a plan of action to present to a panel of judges.

Volunteers will participate in both the morning and afternoon sessions with a break in the middle. Lunch will be provided.

Issues to Action Finals: Friday 5:45 PM - 7:15 PM (3 volunteers needed)

The 5 finalists from Thursday's presentation will present their issue and their proposed plan of action to the panel of judges. Volunteers will serve as judges by listening to the presented plans and providing scores and feedback to the student teams.
