Conference Volunteers


Alumni are key to the success of the Lansing conferences, both for middle school and for high school.  Alumni advise committees, assist in conference affairs, and are present in every facet of programming from the legislature to the National Issues Forum.  Alumni also help develop new programming, and fine-tune existing programs.  The middle school conference needs approximately 20 alumni, and the high school conferences need about 30 alumni.  Volunteering is not only fun, but develops professional skills in organization, public relations, leadership, and team work.  

Register for the conference of your choice under the Middle School and/or High School pages on this website.
