Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in serving as a JuST Conference volunteer. Volunteers serve an important, public-facing role during the conference. In exchange for your support, volunteers receive complimentary conference registration, and there are a very limited number of positions available. Applicants with professional experience in law enforcement, child abuse, social services, maltreatment, or trafficking will be given priority consideration. Please review this information carefully before submitting your application. Deadline for volunteer applications is July 31, 2024.

Volunteer Roles

If you are accepted as a volunteer, you may be assigned to any of these duties. 

Workshop Monitor

  • Assist presenters with handouts, report a/v problems to Pinnacle AV team, monitor sign-in sheets, session counts, etc. Each classroom will be equipped with a projector, screen and sound. No matter how hard we work to prevent problems, they will arise and you must be ready to respond (calmly) and help navigate the problem or find someone who can.
  • Remind attendees to sign in and sign out of each session if they require CEU credit

Registration Support

  • Provide attendees with their badge and any conference materials they may need.
  • Answer general questions about the conference, CEUs, schedule, etc.

Directional and Wayfinding

  • Provide directions and assist lost attendees between workshops. ALL individuals wearing volunteer buttons and holding a sign should be out in the halls and visible to attendees between workshops.
