UCS IT Volunteer
HEAV seeks one or more volunteers to serve in the IT function of the Convention Used Curriculum Sale.
Looking for a way to use your IT skills to serve the homeschool community in a rewarding and fulfilling environment? Consider the HEAV Used Curriculum Sale! Each year, the Used Curriculum Sale serves thousands of homeschool families by giving them the opportunity to purchase discounted instructional materials from other homeschool families at the annual HEAV convention.
Our IT team of volunteers works behind the scenes preparing for the sale in addition to serving on-site during the three-day event in June. To better serve our homeschool families, we’re looking for additional individuals to join the UCS IT team.
Whether you’ve got all of the skills listed below or are proficient in one or two, we’d love to hear from you! Please contact our Used Curriculum Sale coordinator, Christie Underhill, at email@example.com for more information.
We’ve already begun preparations for this year’s sale, so we hope to hear from you soon!
