Volunteer for the ADU Tour
Volunteering is a 3.5 hour volunteer commitment that comes with a free pass to see the ADUs during the period that you are not volunteering. Tour volunteers are assigned to a particular ADU, and check wristbands, tally attendance at the ADU, and answer basic questions about the tour. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact the tour organizer at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you set up. More information about volunteering is available here.
