How many volunteers does it take to run a successful AHEA convention each year?

This year, we are looking for approximately 250 people to cover various shifts on Thursday, Friday & Saturday to help things run smoothly.

What positions need to be filled?

  • Set-up & take down
  • MCs, Security

Who do we need to help out? And how long are the shifts?

Youth, Parents, Grandparents, Homeschool Grads. . . almost anyone that is willing and a teen or older. There are various shifts but most are a 4hour/8 hour/full 2 day commitment.

Why would I like to volunteer?

  • To meet and get to know new friends and like-minded people.
  • To contribute to and support a cause you believe in.
  • To try something new.
  • To save money!! (If you serve an 8 hour shift, you will have your registration fee reimbursed at the end of the convention. If a couple serves 10 hours total between the 2 of them, they will have their couples registration fee reimbursed. Note: Reimbursement does not include the AHEA membership amount, only the convention registration fee portion).
