Sign up for an Unreal opportunity! INTA is seeking volunteers to educate teens on the dangers of counterfeits.

INTA, along with Street Law, Inc. and the Constitutional Rights Foundation (CRF), are continuing our Student Outreach Program this spring to bring the Unreal Campaign to high school students across the United States in an effort to establish smarter consumer habits through trademark and anticounterfeiting education. And we need your help!

Volunteering is easy. All we need from you is your time and enthusiasm; we'll help with the rest. Those who sign up will be paired with classroom teachers across the nation to help take part in administering our trademark-related curriculum, which has already been carefully developed by Street Law, CRF, and INTA members.

Here's three easy steps for INTA members to get involved!

1. Sign up to volunteer. Volunteers in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. can chose from a list of schools interested in the program. Volunteers in other cities can be matched with a school in the U.S. upon request or can suggest their own schools to partner with. Once you sign up, we will provide you with lesson plan and activities along with easy-to-follow instructions on how to teach the lesson.



Please note: You must be an INTA member to volunteer. If you do not have a login, please click the button to create one and come back to this page to sign up. If you are unsure if your organization is a member, click here to find out.

2. Pair up with a local teacher and teach two 45-minutes classes with prepared curriculum and activities on trademark law and counterfeiting harms. Before teaching, it is recommended that all members watch the instructional webinar to help you and review the relevant materials, which can all be found on the Volunteer Portal.

3. Tell us about your experience. We’ll share it with INTA network.     

Further questions about volunteering for the Unreal Campaign should be directed to Maysa Razavi at mrazavi@inta.org.
