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.

Regular cancellation policies apply to volunteers.


We really appreciate our volunteers' willingness to help SELF be a memorable event and run smoothly. We could not produce SELF without the help and dedication of our volunteer staff. We hope you have an enjoyable time and that you come back for many years to enjoy and experience SELF!
