Dates Volunteer is Needed:
Description of the Volunteer Opportunity:
In July 2020, UNM is hosting the International Association for College Admission Counseling’s conference. With 1,400 school counselors, college admission and financial aid officers, and organizations engaged in guiding students through the secondary to higher education transition process in attendance from more than 90 countries, this is an outstanding opportunity to put Albuquerque on the map as a destination for international students. We need many helping hands to ensure a positive experience for attendees, from helping at the registration desk to offering a smiling face and directions to sessions, working a 5K run or helping monitor food lines and recycling efforts. Job descriptions will be made available for all positions.
Who Will Be Impacted Through This Project:
The economic impact for Albuquerque could be far-reaching. In 2019, international students contributed $45 billion to the U.S. Economy and represented 5.2 percent of all higher education students in our country. In New Mexico, our number of international students is currently below the national average; this conference could be a game-changer.
