Volunteer

pcon2013 bb9q4766Penguicon’s success each year is due to our diverse community of volunteers that continue to give of their time and talents. There are many unique opportunities and volunteering for any amount of time is a wonderful way to give back to the community. We would love for you to join our team!

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

The best place to start is to fill out this interest form. This will allow the volunteer chair to help match you with the volunteer opportunities you are most interested in learning more about. Check out the job descriptions for more information about positions that are available. If you are interested in a year-round way to help out Penguicon consider becoming a staff member.
If you specific questions email volunteers@penguicon.org.

VOLUNTEER BASH

Penguicon’s Volunteer Bash is our volunteer kick-off! You can sign up for your volunteer shifts, play games, eat food, win prizes, socialize with other volunteers, and have fun! Join us on March 25th for a great time!

BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEERING

Besides that warm fuzzy feeling you get from helping out something that you love, although really that is pretty great, here are some of the awesome benefits that you get from volunteering your time to help keep Penguicon awesome.
You can redeem the hours you work for the following rewards:

  • One Night in Penguin Pit: 2 hours
  • Pre-Registration of Next Year: 8 hours
  • Reimbursement of This Year’s Badge: 10 hours

When you pre-register your shifts, meaning that you sign up to volunteer before the first day of the event, we have special swag bags for you at sign-in. These are goody bags that have volunteer exclusive ribbons, buttons, your volunteer schedule, and other goodies that the volunteer chair thinks will make you smile 🙂
Our eternal thanks and gratitude that will be shown to you in the form of a volunteer only gift that you will receive when you check out after your last shift.

DETAILS

All volunteers should be at least 13 years of age, and anyone under 16 must bring their parent or guardian to the volunteer table with them to confirm that they know what is going on. Note: We have had several youth volunteers in the past, they are a great help!
