How many Christ on Campus Volunteers (CCVs) will be accepted for each conference?
About 15 CCVs will be accepted for each of the Scranton and St. Louis conferences, and 12 CCVs for the Irvine conference.
How old do I have to be to be a CCV?
You have to have completed at least one year of college and still be considered a student at the time of the conference.
How do I apply to volunteer as a CCV?
Should I still register with my church's group?
If your church is sending a group, then yes you should register with your group as well. We encourage you to register initially with your group so that you are certain to get into the conference. However, if necessary, a college student may register individually. If you are selected as a CCV, your registration will be processed separately from your group and you will be assigned to stay in a separate area. Those accepted as CCVs who are not registered for a conference may still register at that time. If you are registering with a group, please plan to arrive by noon on Monday of the conference week.
How much is my registration if I am selected as a CCV?
CCV registration is significantly discounted and will be no more than $175 per person, per conference. We are working on identifying donors who will provide scholarships for CCV registrations, so you may actually end up paying less than that! We will distribute whatever donations we receive for this purpose equally across all accepted CCV registrations and let you know the final balance due by June 1, 2008.
Will I have special privileges as a volunteer?
CCVs will have staff (i.e., "backstage") access to all areas of the conference and a special conference t-shirt identifying them as staff.
When will I know if I have been selected?
Applications will be accepted during the regular registration period, from November 1, 2007 through February 29, 2008. We should have all CCVs selected and notified by April 1.
Do I have to arrive early or leave late for the conference?
Yes, plan to arrive by noon on Monday of the conference week for orientation/set-up, and to leave late on the last day to help pack up after the conference. This is not an absolute requirement – we realize that some of you will be traveling with a group.
What would I be doing as a volunteer?
Here's a list of some things CCVs may do at the conferences. This list is NOT exhaustive.
Directing groups to the registration area, helping prepare and distribute materials, direct people to dorms and parking areas, break-down of the information table after the end of the conference, etc.
Some of you may be assigned to a sectional speaker to hand out materials and evaluations in the sectionals, make sure speakers have any needed food and/or beverages, run AV, etc.
Worship: Help set-up and break-down the chapel, provide crowd control, assist with altar guild type duties.
Help set-up and break-down.
1-2 CCVs per conference will be asked to take digital pictures of events (you will need to provide your own equipment)
