Giant Jamboree/Volunteers



We are looking for volunteers to help us make the 2019 Giant Jamboree a great event!

The iGEM 2019 Giant Jamboree will be from Thursday October 31 to Monday November 4 in the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts, and we're looking for volunteers to help with the event!

Help us ensure that every iGEM participant has an amazing experience!

Thank you for your interest! The application is currently closed.

We're asking that volunteers commit to at least 2 days since this is a multi-day event. Please keep in mind that your first priority as volunteer is to your designated area and that this may mean that you will miss out on some/all presentations, but we will do our best to make sure you have free time depending on the number of volunteers. Unfortunately iGEM HQ cannot provide financial aid or accommodations for volunteers but food will be provided throughout the event, and volunteers will receive complimentary admission for the days they volunteer.

Please note: This opportunity is open to iGEM alumni and other non-team members only. This opportunity is not available to current team members or family members of team members.
