About Volunteering

Not everyone knows that Anime Evolution events are put together by hundreds of volunteers who are donating their time and are driven by their passion for anime and Asian cultures. It is thanks to their work and dedication that everyone can have an enjoyable weekend. If it weren’t for them, our events wouldn’t be possible.
When you volunteer with us, you join a team of Staff and 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. Staff and Volunteers are expected to work towards maintaining this safe space.


Although all staff and volunteer positions are unpaid, there are a number of benefits to being a member of the Anime Evolution 2019 staff:

  1. Free pass (for yourself) to attend Anime Evolution 2019.
  2. No requirement to wait in line for programming events while off duty, as long as space is available.
  3. Volunteer/Work experience hours – for those that need them (time-sheet is provided!)
  4. Access to the “Dead Dog Party” after the convention is over.
