Volunteer Information & Registration WLD 2019

Who can help?

  • Any Cornell undergrad or graduate student (or faculty/staff!) who has an interest in learning about other cultures and languages.
  • Students with experience in Cornell language courses, study abroad, international student groups, and majors related to languages or international relations are especially needed.

What's in it for me?

  • Free t-shirt
  • Free lunch 
  • Verification of volunteer hours if requested
  • But most of all - a lot of fun!

What kinds of volunteer jobs are there?

Volunteers are needed in many different capacities, including:

  • Set-up **
  • Participant registration **
  • Session room monitors
  • Staff room/presenter check in
  • Registration area and information table
  • Escorts around session sites
  • General "go-fer" help
  • Tear-down

Items with a ** are in the morning and are the areas where we have the largest need for volunteers. Signing up for morning availability will guarantee you a fun and busy morning!

What do I have to do?

  • Sign up on our website with your contact and availability information. We will take volunteers until all positions have been filled.
  • Swing by the Language Resource Center in G04 Stimson Hall to pick up a t-shirt and instructions during one of the volunteer check-in periods (takes 5 minutes):
    • Thursday, October 17, 2019 between 2:15-3:15 pm
    • Friday, October 18, 2019 between 9:30-10:30 am

I'm interested! Now what? 

Thanks for your interest, and we would love to see you at World Languages Day on October 19, 2019! If you still have questions, email worldlangday@cornell.edu and someone will get in touch!
