Innovation & Entrepreneurship - Volunteer Opportunity

Are you interested in social innovation and entrepreneurship? The University of Maryland is hosting the 5th Ashoka U Exchange on February 26-28, 2015 in Washington, DC, and we need volunteers for 2/26! The Exchange is the world’s largest convening for social entrepreneurship in higher education, bringing together 650 university faculty, staff and students, and it’s just two weeks away!

Reasons to volunteer:
  • Meet awesome people. The AshokaU Exchange attracts some of the brightest, most dynamic people trying to make the world a better place through higher education. On top of making new friends, some volunteers will assist speakers before and after sessions, providing great networking opportunities.
  • Attend for free! Volunteer on Thursday, February 26th and attend Friday or Saturday for free! Tickets cost $475 for students and $850 for professionals, so this is a huge cost savings.
  • Free t-shirt. Volunteers get an awesome FEARLESS VOLUNTEER t-shirt to remember the event!
  • Free food. If you’re volunteering during a time that overlaps breakfast or lunch, you will be fed!
  • Build credibility. The AshokaU Exchange is the premiere gathering for aspiring social innovators and entrepreneurs passionate about institutional change in higher education. Be an integral part of these important events and have something to brag about to your friends and potential employers.
