Please select all dates that you wish to volunteer. The LRC volunteer coordinator will then contact you to coordinate the specific details for each event.
Volunteers for all events must be at least 14 years of age.Volunteers under 18 years of age must have parental/legal guardian consent and must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. Volunteers under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
Volunteer assignments will be scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. Schedules are always subject to change due to event needs. Although every effort will be made to accommodate your selection, the volunteer coordinator reserves the right to schedule volunteers based on event needs, which includes placing volunteers on a waiting list. You will receive a confirmed volunteer schedule closer to the event.
