Volunteer Expectations & Details

It's not too early to sign up now! Making Cents seeks volunteers

who are committed to making the Summit a success and

partnering with us to enhance the impact, scale and sustainability

of youth economic opportunities.


Volunteering at the Summit is a rewarding experience and

volunteers are able to attend sessions, as possible, and meet and

network with 500+ leading youth development implementers,

funders, policy makers, youth leaders, companies, and educators

& researchers.


In order to ensure a high quality event, volunteers are asked to

assist with logistics for the entire 3 days of the Summit. Volunteers

are also required to attend a 90 minute volunteer training session

before the Summit.


As this is a non-profit activity of Making Cents, all costs (housing, meals not provided during Summit activities, travel, incidental expenses) associated with participation in the Summit are the responsibility of the volunteer.
