Volunteer Recruitment Tools
Start early! Volunteer recruitment takes time, and is the most important duty of the school, library, or event that is hosting the Trailblazer. These are available for you to download, edit, and print the documents below to create fliers to recruit your volunteers.
Please provide your volunteers a link to to our volunteer training materials. The Trailblazer Program Coordinator can let you know which Trailblazer is headed your way up to one month before the event.
Getting the word out about your event
Below is a press release and media guide to send to local media outlets, an editable poster you can print and distribute, a document with sample text you can use on social media to get the word out about your event, as well as cute social-media ready images for you to share. Please be sure to tag Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering, and please use our hashtag, #DrivingSTEM so we can support your efforts!
