Craving some big ideas and inspiration? Come join us as we help out at TEDxRainier! The all-volunteer staff is working hard to put on an independently produced, one-day TED event showcasing some of the incredible, jaw-dropping talent we have in our own community and your help is needed for hands-on tasks like helping with attendee registration, ushering, shepherding the speakers, and feeding the masses. In return, volunteers will be rewarded with free entrance to the event after your shift and provided lunch. There are three shifts to choose from.
