Each Student Worker is required to work shifts adding up to a minimum of six hours total in order to be eligible to receive your reimbursement check. There are many different volunteer roles, ranging from being an art docent for CERF’s invited artists display, to helping at the registration desk, or serving as a room monitor during oral sessions.
