VOLUNTEER COMMITTEE DESCRIPTIONS

The Black College Football Hall of Fame Classic consists of five major events between August 30 - September 1, 2019. These events rely on 150 community volunteers to support them. Volunteer opportunities range from behind-the-scenes planning and production to working directly with the teams, bands and Gold Jackets (a term to reference living members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame) as Canton hosts thousands of guests in our community.
