Mayor's Back 2 School Fest

Event Day Volunteer Registration

Mayor Sylvester Turner will hold the 6th annual Back 2 School Fest (BTSF) at the University of Houston on August 13, 2016. The fest's core purpose is to promote education by affording families the opportunity to experience a college campus setting and to encourage them to start thinking about and planning for college. Designed to help economically disadvantaged Houston-area elementary school students and their families, the BTSF offers backpacks, school supplies, clothes, City and University of Houston information, health screenings, immunizations, and social service resources to thousands of students.

This event would not be possible without our volunteers.

Volunteer orientation: Tuesday, Aug. 9, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Orientation will be held in Room 100 of the Science and Engineering Classroom Building (SEC) at the University of Houston. Free parking for the orientation will be in the stadium garage located at 3847 Holman Street Houston, Texas 77204 (on the corner of Cullen and Holman). Please enter through the FACULTY/STAFF entrance (middle set) of gates on the Holman entrance.  All volunteers need to attend the training session.
