Browse through available shifts and sign up to volunteer!

An On Iowa! volunteer shirt will be given to all new volunteers; this design is the same as previous years, if you already have one.

Shirts will be available for pick-up starting August 10 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday-Friday, from our On Iowa! Headquarters, room 339 of the Iowa Memorial Union.

Please contact Orientation Services at oniowaprogram@uiowa.edu if you can't make it, or have problems with picking up your volunteer shirt. 


  • We can accommodate only individuals who have been confirmed to volunteer.  We will not be able to accommodate volunteer family members, minors, or pets.
  • Please dress comfortably (tennis shoes, shorts, etc.) and wear your On Iowa! volunteer t-shirt.
  • Wearing a name tag or office button is encouraged.
  • Please leave valuables at home (there is not a place to put purses, backpacks, etc.).
  • Volunteers are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout their shift.
  • We encourage volunteers to wear sunscreen if you are working a shift during peak sun hours.
  • Once your volunteer shift is over, we ask that you exit the volunteer event.
  • Additional volunteer training will be provided on-site prior to the volunteer events.
