SignUpGenius.com is a website that simplifies the signup process, and puts the volunteer in control of his or her schedule. No more waiting on someone to respond to your email, no more waiting for confirmation that your signup has been recorded.
So how does it work? All of our events will be posted, with the available time slots, on the site. The first time you check out the site, www.SignUpGenius.com, you can click on "Find a Signup." Enter "firstname.lastname@example.org" in the email address field and enter the code beneath. All of the events and type of volunteer will be listed there by date. Click on the event you want to signup for, and you will see the available times. Put a check mark in the available slot(s) and click submit at the bottom of the screen. You will be taken to the next page where you can create an account. Enter the contact information requested, and set your notification preferences so that you get notified in the way you want – when you want. Click "Sign up Now" to confirm your information. You’ll be forwarded to a confirmation screen and can then leave the site or return to review additional events.
That’s it – now you can check the site (of course, we’ll still send you notices of new events when we need volunteers) and sign up for events that fit your schedule. You can see who’s signed up to work with you, and easily invite parents from your child’s team to help us fill open time slots. And don’t worry, we’ll put a link to the site on gbnboosters.com so you can still link in from our volunteer page.
Show up for the event - Please note: If you are working in the concessions stand, per Illinois State Code, you must wear closed-toe shoes (no flip flops or sandals).
OPENING AN EVENT:
Please arrive at the designated start time listed on the volunteer schedule as the event will start approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour from the time start time. This will allow time to set-up concessions before the start of the event. Someone who is in charge will help you get started. Check-in by signing the log before you start. We need to unpack candy that is refrigerated, set-up food tables, heat water, wrap pizza, make popcorn, and mix hot chocolate for delivery.
We look forward to having you arrive on time for your shift. No need to show up early - just be on time!
CLOSING AN EVENT:
Coolers need to be restocked and prepared for the next event, serving equipment must be cleaned and returned to storage. All surfaces must be cleaned and sanitized and the floor must be swept.
