Volunteering for TC XXVII:  Just as I am!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We have a limited number of slots available on a first come-first serve basis. True Colors reserves the right to accept, or not accept, any application to volunteer.  Volunteers are the life-blood of the conference!
We couldn’t do it without people like you!
You can help before, during and/or after the conference.

Before the conference, you can help with the decision making and organizing by attending the planning meetings at UCONN. No RSVP or application needed. The meetings are held from 6-8 PM  in the Student Union, 2110 Hillside Rd, Storrs, CT 06268 in room 403 on the dates below. *if you’d like to voice conference into the meetings please indicate below in the comment box and the number will be sent to you.

You can join the leadership team which meets monthly at the True Colors office in Hartford. Leadership team volunteers are trained to take on greater responsibility at the conference. Positions include volunteer coordinator, building manager, presenter liaison, CEU coordinator, signage manager, vendor manager, etc.  Indicate your interest on the volunteer form below and we will contact you with more information. 
There are lots of different ways to help during the conference itself – everything from being a go-fer (running and getting needed things to the folks who need them) to being on the leadership team that directs all of the other volunteers.
And we need help after the conference with inventory and lots of work in the office.

The success of the True Colors Conference depends a great deal on our volunteers. We couldn’t put on this incredible event without YOU! As you think about volunteering, remember that A LOT depends on you. You are vitally important not only to True Colors, but to the youth and adults who attend! Your smile, your efforts, your willingness and enthusiasm can make (or break) a participant’s experience.

Volunteering is broken down into three hour shifts on Thursday (set up), Friday, and Saturday. For every three hour shift you complete, you are entitled to spend the remainder of your time that day enjoying the conference and attending workshops. Two three hour shifts provide you with two free days (outside your shifts). Completing one/both shifts on Thursday provide(s) you entrance on the day(s) you choose. Some volunteers decide to volunteer for only one shift while others dedicate the full weekend to volunteerism!

During your work shift and anytime you are wearing the volunteer staff t-shirt,
