The 2011 CUTA BC Youth Summit is looking for volunteers!

Note: This is a scheduled post as I’m away this week, returning Thursday July 28, 2011. If you need to reach TransLink info or staff, see this post.

The CUTA BC Youth Summit is looking for a few more volunteers. I’ve been involved with the preparations for the conference and it looks like it will be an exciting, educational and fun event!

The conference is for youth aged 18-30 who live in BC and are interested in sustainable transportation. Every year or so, the Canadian Urban Transportation Association (CUTA) partners with local agencies to host a youth conference, encouraging young people to learn about transportation, sustainability, and planning. This year, TransLink, BC Transit, and CUTA will sponsor 50 or so youth to attend our conference at UBC from August 19-21, 2011.

The summit provides volunteers with the opportunity to meet youth from across British Columbia interested in sustainable urban transportation and learn from experts from around the province. Check out translink.ca/bcyouthsummit for all the details as well as the Facebook Page. Here’s a note on specifics:

Volunteer roles include administrative assistance, program session support and technical support. Shifts will be on average four hours long. Please specify your availability when applying. Multiple volunteers will be needed throughout the conference. If you would like to volunteer for more than one shift, please note this on your application.

To apply, send your full name, contact information, resume, availability and why you are interested in volunteering at the CUTA Youth Summit to sarah.chung@translink.ca.

If you have any questions regarding volunteer positions please contact Sarah Chung by phone 604.453.4619 or by e-mail at sarah.chung@translink.ca
