Volunteer Leaders



Homecoming Council Volunteer Leaders will be responsible for leading & managing groups consisting between 15-20 volunteers at the Homecoming Parade (Oct. 6th) during the 2017 Homecoming Week (Oct.1st-Oct. 7th). They will guide volunteers to ensure the smooth progression of the parade and assist the Homecoming Council in executing Homecoming Week events. 

Before the parade & in the volunteer meeting, Volunteer Leaders will be given safety vests, trash bags, and lanyards to be handed out to their volunteer group. They will then instruct volunteers on their roles. 

After the parade & the clean up, the Volunteer Leaders would make sure that all their volunteers who are involved in sweepstakes check out to earn their points. 

Volunteer Leaders will also assist with tabling and outreach throughout September which will allow Council to reach a wider market for Homecoming week. 

Volunteer Leaders will serve as the Volunteer Director’s Team on the Homecoming Council, administered by the Volunteer Director and be assisted by the Sustainability Director & guided by the Parade Directors.

All currently enrolled University of Iowa Students are welcome to apply.


Commitment Duration: September 1st-October 14th, 2017.
