Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Thursday, April 14 – Sunday, April 17, 2016

While volunteering starts now (email, social media, flyers, hosting an event, etc), there are a variety of ways you can volunteer at the conference.

WHO: The WPC team seeks volunteers with a wide range of experiences. We need help with the usual tasks, ie. registration, marketplace, info booth, room monitors, food and beverage, A/V, etc. We are also looking for folks who have unique talents and skills to share with the community. With the help of volunteers, we have been able to offer services including a morning yoga classes and a meditation/prayer room.

WHAT: Volunteers attend a mandatory orientation upon arrival at the conference, BEFORE they may begin accruing volunteer hours. This 90 min session includes a tour of the facility, a special training on risk mitigation and the assignment to a volunteer team. This year, we plan to offer at least three orientation sessions.

WHEN: Volunteers are needed to help with general logistics starting Tuesday, April, 12, 2015. If you are local to the Philadelphia area, and can spare a few hours with us, please email us at This is also an opportunity for high school/college students to bank some volunteer hours. Please contact us to schedule a block for your group! We <3 AmeriCorps!

WHY: The WPC cannot take place without the help of volunteers. Since its inception, there have been hundreds of students, educators and activist just like you who help make this event happen. Volunteer who serve 10 hours or more are eligible to receive a discounted registration rate.

HOW: See directions below on how to apply and register as a volunteer and/or apply for a scholarship.
