Spring & Fall Cleanup Coordinator

We need 1 volunteer to coordinate the spring (May/June) & fall (October/November) high school clean up events. This volunteer would need to coordinate a date of their choosing with the township and team calendar, draft an e-mail to send out to the team looking for student and parent volunteers to help with the clean up and report back to the town to coordinate for the donation payment.

Volunteer to Help With the Spring & Fall Cleanup

We need adult and student volunteers to participate in the high school grounds clean up days. This is a very good fundraiser for the team. We are reimbursed by the township for spending a few hours cleaning up the high school grounds. Volunteers meet at 9:00am on the selected date and walk around the high school grounds picking up litter. Gloves and garbage bags are provided to volunteers. Please contact the cleanup coordinator above to volunteer to help.

Help Run the End of Build Season Party

This is a time for the students to reflect and celebrate the "gracious professionalism", team spirit and sheer determination required to build a robot to meet the specs required for FIRST competition! Our hope is that you will contribute to the success of the "End of Build" season party by donating your time, talents and requested items.

Plan the End of Year Party

A committee of volunteers is needed to plan and run the Team 303 End of Year Banquet and Celebration. Volunteers are needed to help the students pick and book a venue, plan the menu, and coordinate activities for the event.

Run a Fundraiser

While our primary fundraisers during the year are the concession stands that we hold at events, we have held the following smaller fundraisers in the past: Yestercades Event, Coupon Book Sales, Gertrude Hawk Candy Sale, Premiere Designs Jewelry Sale and Meals at a local restaurant that will donate a % of sales to RAMP. Every dollar counts, so if you have an idea for a team fundraiser, please step up and run it for team team.
