Volunteer Information (if applicable)
At NKU, our students will NOT remain together as a group. DreamFest is a chance for them to pursue individual interests, so the students choose their own sessions. As you might guess, we need all the adults to watch out for all the students from all the schools. DreamFest organizers would like to give volunteers specific roles during the day to help all run smoothly. If you chaperone, we will have something for you to do during the day,and you most likely will not be with your child during the sessions.
______Yes, I would like to volunteer. Iam on the CCS approved volunteer list, and I can serve in a specific role for DreamFest on Thursday, March 12th. My email contact information is:

We will work with your child to select the most appropriate sessions to attend based on their areas of identification and interests.
