Work Exchange

Thank you for your interest in our Work Exchange program.

Work Exchange is an enjoyable and important program for NCWHS. It not only provides financial assistance to women with a low-income, it also provides an enthusiastic and fun work force for the Symposium. The many tasks accomplished by Work Exchangers ensure the smooth running of the Symposium on many levels, and we greatly appreciate and depend heavily on each worker!

The questions on the form that you will download help us to place you in an appropriate position. All jobs differ in time and skill required. Please answer all the questions honestly and accurately, since they help us to place you appropriately.

Please Note

  • Work Exchangers work a minimum of 12 hours throughout the weekend and reduce their registration fee to $130 (work times depend on the particular job assignment).
  • There will be a Work Exchange meeting for all workers on the Friday the Symposium opens.
  • You must attend this meeting (unless you make prior arrangements with us.)
  • All applications and job assignments will be considered in order of postmark date.

We will contact you by email sometime during the months of: April or May for Sessions 1 and 2 ~ July or August for Session 3
