Volunteers make it happen!
We have some great volunteer roles with Battle of the Books whether you have a few hours or time for a larger commitment.
Here are a few key roles we are trying to fill:
- Competition volunteers: For Mock Battles and our two competition days, we need runners, room hosts, scorers, and registration table volunteers. These roles are “one shot” opportunities with simple tasks involved.
- Committee positions: An event for 280 kids needs planners in the background! If you’d like to learn more about opportunities in marketing, judging, event logistics, etc., let us know. These roles generally involve some in-person meetings as well as tasks completed on your own time.
- Team coaches: Many of our team coaches are the parents of readers. But each year we need about 6 or 7 coaches from the community to help teams without a parent volunteer. We especially welcome former or retired teachers! In terms of time commitment, you will make arrangements directly with the students – typically a once a week meeting during battle season works well. Read Recruiting Team Coaches to learn more about this important role.
