Volunteer FAQs

Who is this volunteer opportunity open to?

We are looking for individuals aged 19 and over, at every level of experience. Some assignments will require specific skills but others are entry-level opportunities. Those from outside the Vancouver area are welcome, however travel and accommodation are not provided.


What is the time commitment for volunteering?

Volunteers are needed during JUNO Week, March 19-25. We ask that all volunteers are available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings for shifts, as these are the busiest days (March 23-25). Each volunteer is required to commit to a minimum of two shifts of approximately four-six hours throughout the weekend, however some committees will work longer shifts due to the nature of the event.


When will I find out if I am selected?

We will start to build the team once we have completed our recruitment outreach. Applicants will be updated on next steps in the process by email throughout the program.


When will I receive my schedule?

Active volunteers will gain access to the schedule for self-scheduling once selected. You will have the opportunity to sign up for the shifts of your choice based on availability at the time of scheduling.


Can I be scheduled at the same time as my spouse, friend, etc?

Volunteers will have the opportunity to self-schedule from available shifts. If completed at the same time, you should be able to achieve this goal. Make sure to include the name of the person you want to volunteer with on the application form.


When is Volunteer Orientation?

Volunteer orientation scheduled for Tuesday, March 20 (venue TBA). At orientation you will pick up your volunteer package, receive general training on your duties, meet your committee lead, and have the opportunity to ask questions about the volunteer experience. This is where your uniform will be distributed.


What is the volunteer uniform?

All volunteers will be provided with an official 2018 JUNO week t-shirt. Volunteers are required to wear their t-shirt while on duty unless otherwise directed.
