STEMUP is open to all people regardless of race, nationality, religion, sex, education or physical ability.
For legal reasons, we require written authorization from a parent or legal guardian for volunteers under 18 years old.
Volunteering is a way to get involved in projects and to contribute to major local events. For many people, volunteering is a way to express solidarity. Through volunteering, you can meet new people and build contacts.
At the beginning of every major project, we organize an information / training session for volunteers. The training includes both technical information related to volunteer activities and a general introduction to the subject of the conference or event. Volunteers are required to attend the training. We reserve the right to bar admission for Volunteers who are not adequately trained.
Normally, we provide a Volunteer T-shirt and Volunteer Badge, which must be worn at all times, during the actual conference.
Generally, lunches and coffee breaks are provided.
If desired, volunteers receive a certificate of participation at the end of a project.
Once you register with STEMUP, we will send you regular updates on upcoming projects. Once you decide to sign up for one, we will send you specific information related to the project.
We cannot pay volunteers. Volunteers provide assistance on the condition that they are not financially compensated for their time. Expenses (transportation, etc.) may be paid on prior agreement only (see below).
Volunteers are asked to indicate their availability prior to a project. We will elaborate our schedules according to the Volunteers’ availability. Once a Volunteer commits to participate in a project, s/he has a moral obligation to do so. Volunteers must contact us to let us know any changes of availability prior to the event, so a replacement can be found.
We reserve the right to dismiss Volunteers if we feel they are disruptive.
