There are several committees you can volunteer on. Follow the “Sign Up” link to be taken to the SignUpGenius website. You do not need to register with SignUpGenius to volunteer. You can also click here or on the “Contact Us” button above to offer your support via email.
- Clean Up – [Sign Up]
After the event is over, we need to put all the decorations away. Typically, this takes a few hours and goes a lot faster with more people helping out. Your time commitment starts at 5:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 2, 2018. We hope to be finished by approximately 9:00 a.m.
- Decorating – [Sign Up]
This is a big one, and we need a large number of people to help set up and decorate the community centre the day BEFORE grad. This is where it is VERY helpful to have a few strong, able bodied people around (hint, hint – dads!), as there is some heavy lifting. Your time commitment is anytime on Thursday, May 31st, 2018, starting at 11:00 a.m. We will be there until everything is set up.
- Entertainment & Games – [Sign Up]
We are looking for volunteers to supervise the events inside the event. Your time commitment is midnight – 5:30 a.m.
- Food – [Sign Up]
There will be food and beverages during Dry Grad. Volunteers will assist with preparation, food pick-up and/or food set-up.
- Fundraising – [Sign Up]
These volunteers will co-ordinate all fundraising efforts (see Donations). If you have any experience fundraising for large donations we need you!
- Prizes – [Sign Up]
Prizes are a hot commodity and year after year the grads tell us they love this part. If you like to shop with other peoples money this may be the committee for you. We are looking for people who have connections and can get the best deals. (gift cards, electronics, sports equipment, event tickets)
- Red Carpet – [Sign Up]
Traditionally, Grade 11 parents help with this event so parents of the Grade 12’s are able to watch their graduates walk down the Red Carpet. Your time commitment is before/during the Red Carpet event, approximately 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on June 1, 2018.
- Security / Registration / Coat Check –[Sign Up]
We plan to contract a private security company to help maintain security before and during Dry Grad, but we need parents to assist during the night. We will need volunteers to set up and run registration table, coat check (for Grad’s possessions and prizes), oversee initial screening, and provide a friendly parent presence throughout the event to liaise with contracted security guards and Grads. Anyone with First Aid / medical experience would also be helpful. 2-hour shifts will be available between 11pm and 5:30am.
- T-Shirts and Tickets – [Sign Up]
Each Grad will receive a T-Shirt in the days leading up to graduation. We also have to produce tickets for the event and any other fundraising needs.
Even though most of the volunteers are parents of the graduating class, others are welcome to help out as well.
