All volunteers must be Stanford affiliates and at least 18 years of age.


During Splash weekend, the Stanford campus will be crowded with eager middle and high school students running from class to class. They will need help finding their way around, getting lunch, and registering on the first day of the program. You can make Splash an amazing experience for them by volunteering and organizing this event with us!

Current Stanford affiliates are eligible to volunteer. This includes all students, teachers, and postdocs with a valid SUNet ID. You must get a LiveScan background check. (It's quick, easy and we will pay for it!)

Why Volunteer?

This is your chance to join the Splash team and help run Stanford's largest educational outreach event! Volunteering is a low time commitment--you decide how long and when you volunteer. Each shift is only 2 hours. You'll have the opportunity to help students and parents make the most out their Splash experience. Plus, volunteering comes with some nice benefits too:

  • Free breakfast, lunch, and snacks all day
  • A thank-you dinner
  • An awesome Splash t-shirt
  • A generally fun time!

What will I do as a Volunteer?

At Splash, volunteers will have the opportunity to help with all of the following:

  • Student Check-In: Check in students who registered online
  • Help Desk: Help students and parents with general questions
  • On-Site Registration: Help students who didn't register early find classes
  • Teacher Check-In: Greet teachers and give them supplies for their classes
  • Lunch: Help distribute lunch to all the Splash participants
  • Teacher Support: Help teachers prepare their classes and get what they need
  • Directions: Help lost students find their way to class
  • Clean-up: Help get everything picked up after another awesome Splash!
  • General: Help Splash leadership with whatever tasks need to get done
