The following is a brief description of the 13 volunteer committees that assist the Pro Football Hall of Fame during Enshrinement Week. These descriptions will help you decide which committee matches with your interests, skills and abilities.
*******PLEASE NOTE THE AGE RESTRICTIONS FOR VOLUNTEERS*****
You must be 18 years or older to volunteer. Exception: Anyone who is 16 or 17 years old may apply to be a volunteer IF his or her parent volunteers on that committee AND the Chairperson of that committee approves the application.
You must be 25 years or older to volunteer for the Transportation or Corporate Host Committees. Since driving an official HOF vehicle is involved in these committees, you must also possess a valid Ohio Driver’s License and submit to a background check.
To help you better understand the descriptions, these terms have the following meaning:
1. “Gold Jacket.” The term “Gold Jacket” refers to all of the 295 Pro Football Hall of Famers who have received a Gold Jacket. We anticipate that over 120 Gold Jackets will attend the Enshrinement Week Events in 2016.
2. “Enshrinee” or “Enshrinement Class.” This refers to the eight men who were elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. They are Edward J. DeBartolo, Jr., Tony Dungy, Brett Favre, Kevin Greene, Marvin Harrison, Orlando Pace, Ken Stabler and Dick Stanfel.
3. “Enshrinement Week Events” refers to the over 40 events and functions that occur on the Hall of Fame Campus beginning Thursday, August 4th and ending Sunday, August 7th.
