Participating in the Student Volunteer Program is a great way for students to get a behind-the-scenes look at how AGU manages such a large meeting while earning free student registration for 8 hours of volunteer time.  It’s also a great way for students to become more familiar with the events and programs we offer so that they can offer feedback!
