Student Volunteers

CHI PLAY needs your help!

We are looking for student volunteers to help us make the conference a great experience for everyone!

CHI PLAY is both fun and a great opportunity to meet your fellow academics, and the student volunteers are on the front lines. As a student volunteer you will be pivotal in keeping everything running smoothly throughout the conference, and we are encouraging friendly, enthusiastic, and dedicated volunteers to help us out.

Become a Student Volunteer

In order to become a student volunteer, you must have had student status for at least one semester during the academic year 2020. We are more than happy to accept undergraduate, graduate, and PhD students.

Applications will remain open until Sunday September 25th. At which point we will close the lottery and ~15 students will be chosen as SVs. All other students who registered will be assigned a position on the waiting list. We aim to be in touch with all volunteers by September 27th.

As an online conference, we plan to prioritise opportunities for applicants who face greater systemic exclusion and/or marginalisation. We invite you to let us know if you often experience marginalisation or prejudice (e.g.  racism, sexism, ableism, classism, etc.).

What will I do when I volunteer?

An academic conference can be great fun, but is all made possible by those behind the scenes who make sure everything runs smoothly. So if you apply and are selected to be a student volunteer you will be agreeing to:

  • Work approx. 15 hours
  • Show up on time to tasks
  • Attend an orientation session

In return we commit to waive your registration fee. Finally, we will throw an online party for you and your SV teammates.
