Explore Fairbanks is recruiting volunteers for a variety of opportunities throughout the week of October 13-19. During this week, Fairbanks will host the First Alaskans Institute Elders & Youth Conference, the AFN Welcome Potlatch, and the Alaska Federation of Natives Annual Convention.
If you have a minimum of 2 1/2 hours to volunteer, you are invited to join in welcoming guests from around the state. There are a wide range of volunteer activities available, such as setting up at the Carlson Center and Big Dipper, stuffing delegate bags, greeting guests at the airport, potlatch servers at the Big Dipper, registration assistance for the Elders & Youth Conference and the AFN Convention, lobby & door greeters, traffic plan and parking lot attendants and setting up for the banquet at the Carlson Center. Golden Heart Greeter Volunteers will be required to attend a 1-hour training session which will focus on Customer Service and Cross-Cultural Communication. An additional on-site orientation may also be required. More information about volunteer opportunities is available at www.afnfairbanks.com/volunteer
