State Fair Volunteers Wanted

It's That Time Again! We're looking for volunteers to staff our NAMI Minnesota booth at the State Fair!

We'd love to have you for a shift or two...
This year's fair is right around the corner - it runs Thursday, August 24th through Labor Day, Monday, September 4th. We have a morning (9 a.m.-1 p.m.), afternoon (1-5 p.m.), and evening (5-9 p.m.) shift each day. You may also elect to help us with some extra coverage and select a six-hour AM or PM half-Day shift.

The NAMI Minnesota booth is staffed with one staff member and one-two volunteers each shift. Due to limited space, we cannot always schedule more than one volunteer per shift. If you are looking to schedule as a team, please just reserve your spot and contact Volunteer Resources to open an additional slot so we can add your partner. We ask our volunteers to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to their scheduled start time, and volunteers must be available to work a FULL shift.

* We also have a wait-list volunteer position, where local volunteers agree to be available and "on-call" last minute in case our regularly scheduled volunteer has to cancel. If you live in the metro area (the nearer to the fairgrounds the better)  and would be willing to be on-call for a shift or two, we would appreciate having a back-up so we needn't struggle to find a replacement at the last minute. If you would like to work more than 2 shifts at the Fair, please add yourself to the wait-list so we can share the love. We'll plug you in as needed, but would like to give everyone a chance to participate. 

Volunteers will receive a free ticket for the State Fair in order to serve their shift(s).

We're using online sign-ups again this year to make our scheduling run a little smoother.
Here's how it works in 3 easy steps:

1. Click this link
2. Enter your email address: (You will NOT need to register an account)
3. Sign up! Choose your spot(s) - the system will send out automated confirmation and reminders; and NAMI will send a follow-up email and mail a hardcopy training packet and your ticket as the event draws near.

Note: SignUp.com does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use the online sign-up, please contact volunteer.resources@namimn.org via email with your shift selection, name, cell #, and mailing address, and we can sign you up manually.
