Volunteers are an integral part of making the 2024 YJA Convention a success. As an adult volunteer, you will play a vital role at Convention while meeting other volunteers from around the country, and enjoying many of the perks of Convention such as special daytime events, an exclusive Garba, access to a hospitality lounge, and more!. Volunteer shifts run from 8 AM on Thursday, July 4th to 9 PM on Sunday, July 7th. We need the most volunteers on Friday and Saturday (July 5th/6th) of the Convention.
