SOAR 2010 Street Team Volunteers Needed

The Office of Orientation & Family Programs is looking for SOAR 2010 Street Team volunteers to help welcome new students and their families during the month of June.

What is the SOAR Street Team? The SOAR Street Team is a team of volunteers made up of UNCG faculty and staff who assist in greeting, directing and hosting shuttles rides for new Spartans and their families.

When is SOAR? There will be 8 freshman sessions this June: June 10-11, June 14-15, June 17-18, June 21-22, June 24-25, June 27-28, June 29-30 and July 1-2. The majority of the SOAR Street Team duties will be on the first day of SOAR between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Will the SOAR Street Team be paid for their services? No. Sometimes the best reward for a good deed is not money, but the memories. Plus you’d get a 2010 SOAR Street Team t-shirt to wear while you are working, a SOAR lapel pin and an invitation to the SOAR Kick-Off Party where there will be plenty of food and fun for all.

I’m very busy and am taking vacation time in June. Can I still help? Yes. The SOAR Street Team offers flexible hours and excellent benefits to all of its volunteers. You can choose which sessions and times work best for you.

Prior to SOAR, staff will meet with volunteers as a group to say thanks, give assignments, distribute t-shirts and pins.

If you’d like to volunteer for the SOAR Street Team, email Garrett Kachellek no later than Friday, April 30.
