Do you want to be a part of a celebration? Then The Center's 2018 Unity Graduation Celebration is a perfect place to volunteer. During this event, you will help with celebrating the academic accomplishments of students from the University of Nevada, Reno graduating during fall commencement. Please join us in making this event a success.
Any time before each shift ends or when space runs out.
18 and up
You are expected to be professional, dress business casual in clothing that could get dirty from food or moving decoration boxes, wear sensible shoes as there is a lot of walking and standing, take direction from Center staff, ask for clarification, engage with students and their families, smile and have fun!
You will feel great seeing the graduates joy. Oh, you will also get cake, coffee and water.
No free parking. The volunteer opportunity is ideal for students living in the residence halls, have a UNR parking pass, or are already on campus for classes the day of the event.
