Most college fairs are held at high schools on week nights during the months of August – November. An up-to-date listing of upcoming college fairs will be provided to volunteers after they attend a mandatory training session. You will be able to sign up for the fairs that are most convenient for your schedule. The time commitment is roughly 2 – 3 hours per fair.
