We are in need of volunteers for Generation Hope's annual "Pep Rally Under the Stars" Gala and Hope Conference. Our gala is the principal fundraising event for Generation Hope, and will be taking place on Friday, June 1, 2018, at the Washington Hilton Hotel. The Hope Conference will be on Saturday, June 2nd at the same venue. The Gala is attended by 650 guests who include leading figures from the political, media, entertainment, education, and business worlds -- all joined together to celebrate higher education and our vital work and mission.

We're looking for volunteers to assist in a variety of capacities, such as helping with registration, assisting with the silent auction, welcoming guests as they arrive, childcare, etc. Your volunteer role is crucial to making the event a success -- we couldn't do it without you! Please sign up below. If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact Michelle at


SIGNING UP FOR MORE THAN ONE SHIFT: You may sign up for more than one shift but the shifts cannot be in the same time frame. For example, you can select "First Shift #1: 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM" and then "Second Shift #8: 8:00 PM to 11:30 PM" because they are in different time frames. You cannot select "First Shift #1: 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM" and "First Shift #2: 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM" because they are in the same time frame.

SIGNING UP OTHER PEOPLE: You may sign up other people who are planning to volunteer with you (e.g. friends, family, coworkers). If that is your plan, please select "yes" for "I am registering for multiple people" AND provide their names and email addresses. Additionally, please indicate which shifts everyone in your party will be completing. For example, if you'd like to register yourself and someone else as a Greeter, please click on "First Shift #1" AND "First Shift #2" under "Greeters.

ATTIRE FOR SILENT AUCTION AND REGISTRATION TABLE: If you volunteer to work the silent auction table or the registration table please be sure to wear all black professional attire. I.e. closed toe shoes, black blouse, and black pants.

Please note, we are not able to provide parking. There are plenty of local parking garages and the hotel is accessible from the metro.
