High schoolers will take a chemistry test, followed by lab tours, a quiz bowl, and a science show. It is by no means as intense as Science Bowl, but is still a fun opportunity. If you would like to volunteer for part of the event, or the whole thing, just sign up on this Google doc: http://bit.ly/1ipfg3b 

Volunteers will receive instructions when they arrive at the competition. We need 60+ volunteers. Volunteers will get donuts for breakfast if you're signed up for the morning shift. Both shifts will be able to get delicious sandwiches for lunch.

Athlete Brain is in need of a sizeable number of volunteers to administer SCAT3 baseline concussion tests during the Pre-Participation Exam event, hosted by the Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute, on Saturday, April 26. You will go need through a brief training and check-out process prior to the event. If interested, or have further questions, please contact Olivia Glotfelty at [log in to unmask]

10.	LEADERSHIP: Leadership Opportunity with Florida Alternative Breaks (NEW POSTING):
Become the new events chair for Florida Alternative Breaks. As events chair you can look forward to combining your powers of creativity with your sense of logistics as you put on events that perpetuate our culture of active-citizenship and service learning. 

You will be in charge of quintessential FAB events such as orientation and reorientation, which help guide participants in their journey to active citizenship. You will also have the pleasure of putting on FAB fest, an end-of-the-year celebration of FAB's accomplishments and a chance to engage with non-profits in Gainesville. Everything from planning the tiny details, working with a budget, marketing your event, writing press releases, and working with community members will be in your control.

This is an amazing resume and skill-building opportunity. You will have the chance to improve your planning and time management skills, interpersonal communication, flexibility and creativity. You also get to kick it with the coolest crew this side of the I-75.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to become part of a group of people committed to rocking the status quo and changing their world through education, direct service, and reflection.

Past experience with FAB preferred.

Applications are due Wednesday, April 23. Email [log in to unmask] if you have any questions. You can find the application here: https://ufl.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_abBSl7OjlAFvXqB
