Volunteer With OSCEdays
We need your help!
Would you like to be part of the team that creates the OSCEdays experience, and learn about the Circular Economy at the same time? The event is organized entirely by volunteers and they are also an essential part of the day itself! Volunteers receive a free pass to the event as well as snacks and lunch! We ask that you offer a minimum of 3 hours over the course of the day and then the rest of the day, you’re a participant!
Volunteer roles are detailed on our sign-up form. Once you submit your form, a member of our team will contact you to coordinate scheduling and tasks.
Our OSCEdays mentors are experts in a variety of design and business processes. Participants will have the opportunity to ask mentors for guidance on their challenges throughout the day.
