establish a protocol for this (have an open house to recruit potential volunteers)

“WESU 101” session for everyone, and then people would split into sessions for either volunteer status or DJ training

-WSA can help us hang up flyers throughout the Middletown community (email MA, he can give us contacts for outreach and student diversity). We can also print at WSA office.
