Register to Volunteer at a 2018 World Savvy Festival!


We are so excited that you are interested in volunteering at the World Savvy Festival this year!

If you are new to World Savvy, here is more information about our work. The World Savvy Festival is an annual event for middle and high school students in our World Savvy Classrooms program. The day long event brings students from different schools together to share and get feedback on their research and action plans and engage with each other through a mini design challenge. Here is a glimpse into a past festival.

Our 2018 festivals are on Wednesday, May 9 (Twin Cities at University of St. Thomas in St. Paul) & Friday, May 18 (San Francisco at Mills College in Oakland).

This year we have three main categories of volunteer roles:

  • As a Judge you will watch several student presentations. For each, you ask follow up questions about their project and process and fill out a judge form to give the team feedback.
  • As a Facilitator you will guide one or more groups of students through the Knowledge 2 Action, Design Thinking process. Students will be at round tables in cross-school groups for a mini “design challenge.” You will answer questions, prompt students, and keep groups on pace.
  • As a Operations volunteer you will have one or more roles. These may include helping out with directing attendees, registration, lunch, photo booth, etc.

To register as a volunteer, please click on the button below.

After you register, we will be in contact with you about additional details. Thank you so much for volunteering! We appreciate you, and this event would not be possible without you!
