Maker Faire Volunteers

Maker Faire Detroit 2019 Volunteers

The Henry Ford will host Maker Faire, a two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates arts, crafts, engineering, science projects, and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It's for Makers- creative, resourceful people who like to tinker and love to make things.

And for all of this we need Volunteers!!!!

Important:

  • All volunteers must be 18 or older
  • All volunteers must commit to at least one 5 hour shift
  • All volunteers must attend a mandatory orientation. You will find on the sign up board two different times for orientation. Please pick one then continue down the list to sign up for the position you would like for Maker Faire.
  • More information about positions, parking, and check in times will be discussed at orientation.

Additional volunteer opportunities will be added as maker requests come in. Check back often as there may be new openings posted!

THANK YOU!!!
