- Attend one of the mandatory phone or skype orientations.
- Sign in and out for your shifts at the event.
- Have fun!
Weekend Commitment Volunteers assume specific positions and limited slots are available. Only die-hard volunteers that intend to return yearly in this capacity need apply. These positions will work more than 12 hours and will need to commit to multiple meetings leading up to the event and a post event meeting to discuss how to improve the experience for others in the future. If you are interested in one of these positions, please note this on your submission.
The following Weekend Commitment Volunteer positions are open: Volunteer Leads (3), Supply Team (2), Changeover Lead (1).
Regular cancellation policies apply to volunteers.
