A Rewarding Experience
Austin community volunteers will play a key role in the success of RISE 2009. RISE showcases the Austin spirit of community exchange and connection. Volunteers will be essential to the interface with RISE hosts and attendees by extending a welcome hand to all participants. Volunteering with RISE will not only be rewarding but a rare opportunity for Austin students and professionals to interact and learn from a selection of the city's top entrepreneurs while also accessing a network of like-minded individuals.
