Do I need to VIP trained to work in concessions?
VIP Training is not required to volunteer to work in the stands. Please note that all volunteers do need to checked-in prior to shifts.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age or older to serve in concessions.
Can I chaperone and sign up to ride with my child/student in the bus?
At this time, Directors will be using ECISD Staff for chaperone assistance. All ECISD Staff are VIP trained and approved to be on campus.
Should we need to call for parent volunteers, VIP training is required. Once approved by the director, you may ask to chaperone your child/student bus.
Will my child/student have to fundraise?
East Central Band Boosters hosts various community fundraisers to limit the ask of a child/student to go door-to-door to sell items.
We need volunteers to help work our concessions stands to fundraise as much as we can.
Reach out to [email protected] to sign up for a shift. Proceeds from concessions support our program.
