• Are you a 10th grader who has attended EYH in the past and loved the experience?
  • Do you enjoy math, science, technology, and/or engineering?
  • Do you remember all of the volunteers in gold shirts who helped you during EYH?  
  • Would you like to help other girls by being one of these EYH volunteers this year?

If so, we invite you apply for the High School Volunteer program at this year’s EYH conference.

Basic Information about the Program

Past EYH participants who are now in 10th grade are invited to apply to be a High School Volunteer at this year’s EYH program.  High school volunteers will spend the day with a JMU student volunteer buddy and will help with all of the usual activities of our JMU student volunteers.  They will assist in the student workshops, share their experiences at EYH and in high school with the conference participants during breakfast and lunch, and hear about college life from their JMU student volunteer buddy.  This is an opportunity to give back to the EYH program by helping with the behind-the-scenes tasks that help EYH run smoothly!  

How to Apply

To apply, please download and print the application below.  The application asks for a short essay and requires the signatures of a teacher and a parent/guardian.  Return the application by email to eyh@jmu.edu (preferred) or by mail to the address listed on the form.  All applications must be received by 5pm on February 28th.

We expect to accept about five High School Volunteers, and decisions will be sent via email by March 7th.
