Student Volunteers Student Volunteers Plan Details

Overview

The OOPSLA Student Volunteer program provides three volunteer plans: bronze, silver, and gold. Each of the three plans is described in detail below.

  • Bronze Plan - The bronze plan requires the least number of hours from student volunteers and provides all the student volunteer benefits. The bronze plan, however, does not provide any financial support. Typically the bronze plan requires approximately 12 hours1 of volunteer duties.
  • Silver Plan - The silver plan requires more volunteer hours from recipients than the bronze plan and provides all the student volunteer benefits. The silver plan also provides reimbursement to the student volunteer for up to 150 USD of expenses incurred to attend the OOPSLA conference. Typically the silver plan requires approximately 16 hours1 of volunteer duties.
  • Gold Plan - The gold plan requires more volunteer hours from recipients than the silver plan and provides all the student volunteer benefits. The gold plan also provides reimbursement to the student volunteer for up to 500 USD of expenses incurred to attend the OOPSLA conference. Typically the gold plan requires approximately 20 hours1 of volunteer duties.
