Volunteer now for 2014 FAFSA Frenzy events
With 77 sites planning to conduct 81 events in 44 counties for 2014, this year’s list represents an approximate increase of 40 percent over last year. Additionally, the toll-free volunteer support line will operate on the main event date again this year. This means there are 82 opportunities to volunteer. The strength of Missouri's FAFSA Frenzy events is in the dedicated volunteers willing to share time and expertise. Remember, you do not have to be a financial aid or FAFSA expert to volunteer. Sites need volunteers for registration staffing, attendee exit checkout, refreshment or child care assistance, and more. Submit your 2014 FAFSA Frenzy Volunteer Application today!
