HOW TO REGISTER
All new and returning volunteers must register/re-register on Shiftboard to volunteer for Sled Island 2018. If you are a returning volunteer, please use the same email used in your previous volunteer year to have your existing profile merged with your current profile.
Register online by May 18, 2018. Walk-in registrations will be accepted after May 19, 2018 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 12pm - 6pm at the Sled Island office (2206a 4th St. SW).
Please allow five business days for us to process your registration. Once your registration has been approved, you will receive a welcome letter outlining your next steps.
COMMITMENT AND PERKS
To earn a Sled Island Discovery Pass or All-Ages Pass, we require a commitment of 26 volunteer hours pre-festival* or 16 volunteer hours during the festival. All volunteers receive a Sled Island volunteer t-shirt.
*Pre-festival hours must be completed on or prior to June 19, 2018. Volunteers must complete all 26 hours to be eligible for a Discovery Pass or All-Ages Pass. Pre-festival hours do not carry over to festival hours, so if a volunteer is unable to complete all 26 pre-festival hours and still wants to earn a pass, they must join a new crew to complete their remaining required hours during the festival.
Volunteer crews include: airport, artist lounge, art venue, beer garden/bartending, billet, comedy venue, door, film venue, hospitality, Green Island, line management, merch, pass pick-up, pre-fest, production, photography, relief, security, safer spaces, stage management, transportation and venue management.
ORIENTATION AND TRAINING
New volunteer orientation takes place on May 30, 2018 at Festival Hall (1215 10th Ave. SE). Orientation is optional for returning volunteers.
Mandatory pre-event meetings take place on June 16 and 17, 2018 at the Fairmont Palliser (133 9th Ave. SW). Exact location and times TBA. Transportation, artist lounge and venue managers have separate training and meeting dates TBA closer to the festival.
