Join the Team!

The event is powered by the committed Volunteers who dedicate their time and effort to put on the event. When you volunteer with us, you join a team of Managers, Coordinators, and other Volunteers who are passionate about working together to plan events, organize people, and help our attendees be safe. We are currently seeking people with a passion for fostering community who can manage time and resources effectively and communicate efficiently in high-energy environments. We also strive to be a safe, inclusive space for everyone. Volunteers are expected to work towards maintaining this safe space.
