The 46th Annual National Down Syndrome Congress Convention is coming to the Sheraton Dallas Hotel & Convention Center. The NDSC welcomes over 3000 people to our annual convention, and we require a great deal of volunteer support to make the convention a success. Our areas of volunteer need include Registration, Floaters, Session Hosts, the Youth & Adults Conference, and Kids' Camp.
At the Youth & Adults Conference, individuals with Down syndrome age 16 and older participate in their own convention activities throughout the weekend, while those in Kids' Camp (ages 6 mos to 14 years) have a great time in a camp-like setting, all while their parents attend workshops related to aspects of having a child with Down syndrome. Our volunteers in these areas support those with Down syndrome making sure they are engaged and having a great time during their activities.
We are also seeking volunteers to help with convention registration, at the Educators' Conference, and as session hosts or floaters. There are a variety of volunteer times slots throughout the weekend. More information about volunteering can be found on our volunteer registration website at http://ndsc.ivolunteer.com/dallas_2018.
