Volunteers

Project sites will be posted at a later date in 2015. To volunteer, choose one of The Big Event project sites and click the link to register.

Due to the large number of volunteers, transportation to project sites is not available through The Big Event, so volunteers must coordinate their own travel.

Registration for projects begins March 2, 2015. Please note: If you sign up for a project and NEED TO SWITCH TO ANOTHER PROJECT, DO NOT re-register. Instead, email thebigevent@uta.edu or call 817-272-2963 to make this change.

SITE LEADERS

Site leaders are provided with training for directing volunteers and ensuring project site safety, communication skills, forming relationships with agency contacts, and giving back to the community. Sign up to be a site leader at a project site by downloading the site leader application form (see link below). Email your completed application to thebigevent@uta.edu or hand-deliver it to Bonnie Rodriguez in the Lower Level of the E.H. Hereford University Center.
