Volunteer

When you volunteer to help with GEW, you gain valuable experience and get to interact with some of the best and brightest students, faculty, and staff that Penn State has to offer. You’ll also have the chance to meet successful entrepreneurs and explore networking opportunities.

While we always invite individuals to participate as Student Volunteer Ambassadors (SVA), student-run organizations like Innoblue and Happy Valley Communications provide GEW with most of our volunteers.

After you attend a brief SVA training session, you’ll be paired with one or two other students to manage an event by preparing the room, greeting and announcing the speaker(s), communicating the attendance code, and ending the event. Managing an event will typically take 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

You can also volunteer by hanging signs to promote GEW and individual events, writing blog posts, presenting an event, speaking to classes about GEW, and more. If you have an idea to help grow and promote GEW, we want to work with you.
