The Success Beyond the Classroom program is sponsoring a "Young Authors" conference for 4th - 8th graders. URVC has supported the "Creativity Festival" and the "Future City Competition" just recently and recommends your consideration to assist this program for enhancing writing skills of young authors. The conference takes place in two stages at Bethel University in Arden Hills. The Winter program is on Thursday, March 20. The Spring program is May 27 - 30.
Volunteers are needed from 7:30 AM - 2 PM each day.
The responsibilities are morning registration, distribution of materials, guiding students to conference locations, lunch monitoring, book fair monitoring, and assisting the presenter. You will have the opportunity to observe the presentations on writing development and the youth seeking to be creative authors. The theme for the event is "Characters that POP !"

For those who have not volunteered previously with Success Beyond the Classroom there is a required volunteer application and background check.
