Greetings from the College of ACES Alumni Association!
The ACES Alumni Association will be hosting the fifth annual 2020 ACES Family Academies on July 9-10, 2020 to be held on the ACES campus at the University of Illinois! As you may know, ACES alumni have been invited to bring youth ages 8-13 years old to campus for a 2-day educational experience while spending time together on the University of Illinois and College of ACES campus. Participants will enjoy the college experience living in Bousfield residence hall, eating in the dining facilities and having a tailgate as well as participating in educational classes on the College of ACES campus.
We are in need of many volunteers to help make this event successful in conjunction with our ACES Alumni Board of Directors. There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the two days including assisting with check in/move in, moderating a session, being a bus guide, helping host our information tables, assisting with evening programs, check out/move out, etc.
We also need many staff that can assist with driving the campus turtle top vans to and from sessions or evening programs off the ACES campus. This is a great opportunity to be involved, meet and visit with our alumni and participate in a session or program. You can volunteer for any session marked (STAFF ONLY). Some of the locations will need one driver and some will need two drivers based on participants enrolled. Staff will need to complete or have completed the Turtle Top training with car pool to be eligible to drive. If you have not taken this class, we can assist you to set up your training.
Finally, if you would like to stay in Bousfield Hall if you are off campus, there will be a fee of $25.00 per night to cover the lodging expenses. All other costs will be covered for meals, t-shirts, etc. You can register by the item marked (FEE) for Wednesday or Thursday evening lodging.
Please register by June 1, 2020. All Volunteers will need to complete the packet of information and sign and mail or fax to the ACES Alumni Association by July 1, 2020.
All volunteers must complete the online ANCRA training by July 1, 2020 to be allowed to serve as a volunteer. Please visit: https://web.extension.illinois.edu/extensionprotection/to register and complete the course.
