UVU Student Volunteers

The Office for Global Engagement no longer runs the Dual Language Immersion Fair, please contact the Department of Languages and Cultures for information about future DLI fairs.

If you are a UVU student who speaks French, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese or German, and would like to volunteer your time at one of the fairs during the months of February and March, please contact the language coordinator for each language for more information.

In accordance with UVU policy regarding Minor on Campus, volunteers are only able to help with activies or competitions in the presence of Authorized Adults. These are UVU faculty or staff who help organize the event and teachers of the students from the elementary schools.

All volunteers must confirm their participation before the start of the fair so they can be checked against the Sex Offender Registry. Volunteers must check-in at the regsitration desking using government approved ID. Once their identity is confirmed, they  will receive a lanyard denoting them as official volunteers.

Please note: All volunteers will need to sign a volunteer agreement form.

It is recommended that a minimum of three volunteer parents register per classroom but no more than 1 parent per ten children. Please include all adult supervisor names in registration forms. Upon arrival, parents are required to check-in at the Visitor's Welcome Table at the Grande Ballroom.
