Our St. Louis Eclipse Task Force is a collaboration of organizations working together to prepare the Greater St. Louis area ready for this historic event.   We welcome volunteers who share our vision and would like to help us make this expo successful.  We have a number of needs:

  1. Help Us Grow Our Attendance - Tell your friends about the expo and encourage them to get tickets and attend
  2. Help Us Grow Our Exhibits - Encourage your local school, city, park and businesses to exhibit at the expo -- the more the merrier!
  3. Help Us Find Sponsors - Help us find sponsors to help fund the expo and provide FREE glasses to area schools
  4. Volunteer Your Time - We need many hands to make this work.  Help us by volunteering your time to:
    • Serve on our committees to help plan the event details (not as much time required as you might think)
    • Setup and breakdown the exhibits before and after the event (muscle needed - a great job for students)
    • Oversee the "Activity Stations" (a good job for teachers)
    • Serve as event "Ambassadors" (patience and people skills needed)

If you would like to learn more about serving as a volunteer, please complete our volunteer registration form.
