We need teens in 8th-12th grade to help run our carnivals AND to help us prepare at the prep events.

Teens in 7th grade are invited to volunteer as assistants at the first carnival. Our 7th graders can volunteer for one shift or both, depending on if they want to enjoy the carnival themselves.

All slots are first come, first served, so sign up ASAP. (If you would like to be working with a friend, make sure your friend also signs up!)
