Become a Volunteer
Volunteers are the livelihood of our event—they make it possible! Our passionate AE Staff and Volunteers dedicate their time and effort both throughout the year and at-con to keep Anime Evolution events running.
AE: Summer 2019
Types of Volunteers
Day-Of (Event) Volunteers
Volunteers function as a support to the staff members. They often assist with smaller tasks such as line control, handing out materials, and making deliveries between convention departments
VACS Members – Event Staff
Staff members are more involved in the planning stages before Anime Evolution, as well as the daily operations during Anime Evolution and other events.
Staff members must put in more hours of work during the convention – 4 – 8 hours total at the very minimum. The work itself is also harder and more demanding. Staff have a higher accountability and responsibility to the convention and its members.
AE staff members may apply to specific departments and assist mainly with the department that they are assigned to.
Although all staff and volunteer positions are unpaid, there are a number of benefits to being a member of the Anime Evolution 2019 staff:
- Free pass (for yourself) to attend Anime Evolution 2019.
- No requirement to wait in line for programming events while off duty, as long as space is available.
- Volunteer/Work experience hours – for those that need them (time-sheet is provided!)
- Access to the “Dead Dog Party” after the convention is over.
