Shreveport-Bossier Mini Maker Faire

2019 Shreveport-Bossier Mini Maker Faire

 

Calling all volunteers!

You are needed for the Shreveport-Bossier Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, September 7, 2019 from 11 am - 5 pm, the Louisiana State Fairgrounds Agriculture Building, 3206 Pershing Blvd, Shreveport, LA 71109 (Click here for map link) . This year's event is organized by staff from Parish of Caddo, NWLA Makerspace, Sci-Port Discovery Center, Shreve Memorial Library, Step Forward, Cohab, and the Bossier Parish Library. Note: Volunteers under 18 years of age may volunteer only if accompanied by an adult volunteering with them.

 

Why Volunteer?

The Mini Maker Faire cannot happen without you! Many volunteers are needed to make this event possible. Please consider volunteering your time prior to, during, or after the event. Only through the help of many volunteers can we meet our goal of making this event an enjoyable experience for Makers and guests alike.

 

What would I do as a Volunteer?

Tasks include event setup, tear-down, assisting the Makers, admissions help, general assistance, helping with the Maker Family Zone (hang out with your friends and act important), and many more. There's something for everyone! With our web-based sign up, you can choose what you want to do and when you want to do it.

We will be updating volunteer needs until the start of the event. If none of these positions work, but you want to be notified of new positions or if you have questions, comments, or special limitations of which we should be aware, email us at [email protected] to let us know.

 

How do I get started?

Look through the listing of available shifts below. If there is a number in parentheses next to an available shift name, it means there is a need and an open shift available. Click the "Sign Up" box to volunteer for the shift(s) you prefer, and then click the "Submit and Sign Up" button at the bottom of this page. Complete the short form on the following page.

You do not have to become a SignUp Genius member to volunteer (but frankly it's easier for you to revise your selections later and for us to keep in touch with you). Either way, after selecting preferred shift(s), click the "Sign Up Now!" button, and you're done. You will receive a confirmation by email and a reminder email a few days in advance of the event.

Please note we may solicit you to perform a different duty as tasks, last minute emergencies, and volunteers vary. We will work to ensure reassigned tasks are in keeping with your original request.

 

Thank you for your help!

 

We look forward to seeing you at the

Shreveport Mini Maker Faire.
