Shifts are available from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and include setting up, checking in volunteers and exhibitors the day of the festival, handing out event location guides, crowd control, manning snack, water and zero-waste stations, event breakdown and general event assistance.

Sustainability Fest is a zero-waste event that provides information about the latest developments in sustainability. Hosted by the Office of Sustainability, the event gathers campus and community organizers to engage attendees about sustainability-related topics through interactive activities and prizes. Last year’s Sustainability Fest saw more than 250 guests. That number is expected to double at this year’s festival.
