Q: Who can volunteer?
A: Because “i” The Guy is TALL, you’ll need to be a bit tall and thin to fit in the costume. If you’re at least ____ tall and no more than ___ pounds, you can do it! He doesn’t talk, so both men and women are welcome.
Q: When do you need me?
A: Most “i” The Guy appearances are scheduled at Houston schools during the school day, roughly between 9 am and 2 pm. He also makes appearances at after-school programs, summer camps, and special events, so the schedule is flexible.
Q: How does it help?
A: There’s nothing more fun and rewarding than knowing you’ve made a difference in a child’s life. Children are much more likely to open up and share their writing with “i” The Guy, which gives teachers and writing coaches a chance to listen and identify areas where students can improve.
