IFF Service and Action

All MS and HS students are welcome to sign up for the International Food Festival Volunteer opportunities. This is a great opportunity to celebrate our cultural diversity at SCIS, but also to give back to our community. Thank you for your help.

The IFF will take place on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 11 am to 3 pm, but there will be opportunities for students to get 2 hour segments from 10:30 - 12:30, 12:30 - 2:30, or 2:00 - 4:00. The first shift will help with set up and organization, while the second shift will help with selling and stocking. The final shift will help clean up and finish the event.

Volunteer opportunities include: 

* Drink Booth 

* Country Booth 

* Country Games Supervision + Organization 

* Face Painting 

* Raffle Basket Booth 

* Student Volunteer Coordinator 

* Sign Making —all signs to be completed by Friday, Oct. 23

Students in MS will have forms that will be signed by the supervisors, but HS students will be automatically placed in the IFF Volunteer Group in Managebac. Students will be expected to take photos of their service, upload reflections to Managebac, and generally work with others to take on some new challenges over the course of the event. For HS grade 9/10, this is considered in-school service. For grade 11/12, please talk with your CAS coordinator for how you classify this activity.
