Just as you're getting ready for BarnRaise, our student volunteers are preparing as well! We had a meeting today to get everyone on the same page. We aim to provide the best assistance for our partners and participants as possible, and keep the event running smoothly and efficiently. Fingers crossed. This is the first year of BarnRaise, and we've certainly learned a ton very quickly. To think, a few months ago, we didn't even know what this new event would turn into, or what it would be called! Now, we have terrific partners, a few great sponsors, and a great anticipated turn out for the event. Have you purchased your ticket yet? There are still a few left, but hurry to nab one of the last ones!

We're really fortunate to have a great group of positive volunteers this year! We hope next year's group will continue this tradition of positivity and energy.

Our volunteers are part of the BarnRaise family and team. We are working hard to create a fun and useful experience for students as well! Ideas on how to improve the volunteer experience next year? Please let us know! Feel free to email Chairs Christina and Shanti with feedback: cnoonan@id.iit.edu and smathew@id.iit.edu

Lastly, detailed schedules will be going out to registered participants, partners, and speakers this week. We did notice some of the registrants didn't share their email though, so if you haven't gotten a copy of this by Friday and would like it prior to the event, feel free to email barnraise@id.iit.edu. A simplified copy of the schedule can be viewed below.
