We need you!
Every year, dozens of wonderful, servant-hearted conference attendees willingly sacrifice part of their time at the conference. Why? Because they understand that without their help, it would be impossible to have a confrerence that the average homeschool family could afford to attend.
There are several opportunities for adults and young adults 15 and older who are attending with a parent. Sign up online for the job and shift you want. So you don't have to feel like you are missing any of the messages, you will receive a coupon for one MP3 download for every session you miss. Most shifts are two and one half hours to three hours long.
You must be registered for the conference to volunteer.
You can indicate you want to volunteer when you register for the conference.
If you are already registered, you can contact Karen Lyons at email@example.com to volunteer.
If you specifically want to volunteer in the Used Curriculum Exchange, contact Karen Espalin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We no longer offer work-scholarships, but we do offer Benevolent Scholarships, Single-parent Scholarships, Pastor/Missionary Scholarships and Military Scholarships. View the Scholarship Page for more information. If you are a recipient of a scholarship, you are welcome to volunteer, but it is not mandatory.
As a thank you for helping the OCEANetwork Conference run smoothly, volunteers will be in the first group to be allowed to shop the Used Curriculum Exchange. Shopping for volunteers will be on Friday starting at 12:30 p.m.
