How To Volunteer for Trivia Weekend Phone Banks

Facebook Twitter

01/13/2016 - 11:30 AM

We would love to welcome you as a Trivia Weekend 2016 Phone Bank Volunteer!

Trivia Cruisin' 2016 starts at 5 p.m. on Friday, February 12 and continues for 50-consecutive hours until 7 p.m. Sunday, February 14.


Thanks to  local businesses, we provide delicious food & beverages for volunteers.  

If you volunteer 15 hours or more, you'll earn a collectible Trivia Cruisin' T-shirt!

Most phone bank shifts are 3 hours long. If you've previously haven't worked on the phone bank hotlines we have about 20 minutes of pre-training before your first shift.

Here's more info on volunteering. It's a very fun and a slightly (or majorly) addictive experience.

You are interactive with more than 2,000 trivia players calling in their guesses. If you want to learn more about the contest, check out our Trivia Weekend pages.
