CompassionCon 2023 will be a Fall event centering on the viral nature of compassion when our communities prioritize our common humanity and interdependence. This interactive festival-like conference will uplift the positive impact compassion has on our social and community contexts of health. CompassionCon will develop awareness, education, and action around compassion for self, others, and the earth. The goal is to help people realize that we must care for each other and build communities around a culture of care that supports everyone’s well-being. CompassionCon is an opportunity to celebrate our interconnectedness while we build healthier communities together. The festival will include music and art, wellness activities, food trucks, mobile health care units with blood pressure testing, HIV testing, covid vaccines, as well as the distribution of hygiene products.
We will do our best to honor the times and positions you prefer, but based on need or limitation you might be assigned to a different area. We will reach out to you prior to the event with assignments and check-in information. Volunteers should expect to arrive about 15 minutes before their "shift" starts. For your comfort, we strongly encourage you to bring a reusable water bottle and dress appropriately for the weather as this is an outdoor event.
You'll receive a t-shirt and a $15 food voucher when you check-in.
Thank you for volunteering. We appreciate our volunteers!!
