    Big Sunday

    This year again we will be doing projects at all 5 school sites along with cleaning up all the hiking trails.  The registration form asks which location you would prefer to work. We cannot guarantee your location, but we will do our best to place as many volunteers in their requested locations. If you do not have a preference, please highlight that answer and you will be placed where needed.

    NOTE: Adults are the only volunteers who can request a location. All students 8th grade and below must have a parent/guardian on-site . They will be placed with their parents. All high school students will be placed at the high school or on the hiking trail adjacent to the high school.

    FAST PASS: In order to make check-in easier we are again offering a fast pass to everyone who registers online before the deadline of Friday, April 27th. Fast Pass this year is a downloadable Volunteer Authorization Form (there will be a prompt to download at the end of registration). Print this form, fill it out, sign and bring it with you to check-in.

     
     

    Registered Participants will receive a T-Shirt & Wrist Band

    (we receive these from Big Sunday, sizes are not confirmed so come early to get your first choice of size)

    Walk-up volunteers day of the event, will not receive a shirt, unless we have extra after registration is completed.
     
    ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST HAVE A WRISTBAND ON TO PARTICIPATE. DO NOT GO DIRECTLY TO SCHOOL SITE,
    YOU MUST CHECK IN AT THE HIGH SCHOOL. 

     

    Event begins with Check-in at 7:15 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. at Oak Park High School

    Breakfast will be offered for free!

    Group Photo will be taken at 8:20 a.m.

    PLEASE READ ALL STEPS BEFORE REGISTERING:


     

    STEP ONE: VOLUNTEERS

    • When you click on the registration button you will be asked to fill-out all family members volunteering. If you have more than 6 volunteers, please place one parent on one registration form, then come back and register the other parent with the rest of the members. If there is only one parent, put your name on both registrations that way we will be sure to keep the family together.

    • Parents, please place your names in the first two volunteer positions.

    • If your last name is different from your child(s), please hyphenate so the names match.  This will allow us to keep families together.

    • All students 8th grade and below MUST have a parent/guardian with them during the entire event.

       

    STEP TWO: AFFILIATION

    • You will be asked for your school affiliation, this can be different for every family member depending on the school they attend.

    • If you are not affiliated with a school, click Community Member.

    STEP THREE: PROJECT LOCATION

    • The first two volunteers will be asked Preferred Location. We will do our best to place you at our desired location.

    • All students 8th grade and below will be placed at the location their parent has chosen.

    STEP FOUR: VOLUNTEER AUTHORIZATIONS

    • This year we have TWO FORMS, one is an online waiver and one is your Volunteer Authorization/Fast Pass.

    • You will receive a confirmation email immediately after you submit your registration online.  In that confirmation, you will be asked to click a link for the forms.  First, you will see the Big Sunday Waiver, please read it completely and when asked; Approve or Disapprove of the conditions.  NOTE: if you disapprove you will not be able to participate in the event.  On the bottom of that waiver form will be a link to the Oak Park Unified School District Volunteer Authorization Form./Fast Pass.

    • YOU MUST click on the link and download the form.  This Form is your FAST PASS through check-in just read, complete and print.  Bring the form with you to check in at the High School the morning of the event!  Only one form is required per family.  It's so Easy and Simple!
