3. Walk to Volunteer Area

See arrow #3 on the map image.

Walk South on 12th Ave.

To your right, on the West side of 12th Ave, you will see a building "The Brian Garcia Welcome Center."

Just beyond the building, you will come upon a vehicle gate with a sign "Human Welcome Center." We are just beyond that gate!

To the far right of the vehicle gate, there is a pedestrian gate entrance. If it is open, go through that gate.

If the pedestrian entrance is not open, look for a security guard in front of the building. Let them know you are a volunteer with the Project Humanities program, and they should be able to help you get inside the gate.

If there is no security guard, go to the desk inside the "The Brian Garcia Welcome Center" building, and let them know you're a volunteer and need entry.

Service Saturdays Volunteer Area Map

Once inside the gate, you should immediately find us in the grassy area of the Human Services Campus.

Volunteers will be wearing "Project Humanities" shirts or button pins.

There is typically a pre-setup taking place just before the event, then an orientation at the beginning of the event. 

If you don't see an obvious place to jump in and help, or if you have any questions, seek out an experienced volunteer or Dr. Lester.
