Job Shadowing – MetroLacrosse supports participants’ aspiration for college and career by offering job shadowing opportunities during school vacation weeks.

These events range from charity lacrosse tournaments to fundraisers and we always need the extra help of reliable volunteers to make them happen. Event volunteers are expected to arrive on time and remain actively engaged while at the event; have a flexible, “do anything” attitude; be comfortable interacting with MetroLacrosse constituents such as participants, families, and donors; and be able to work within a team.
