Volunteering with Greeters involves welcoming incoming Burners on their way into the event. You’ll provide a friendly face as well as valuable information for the newly arrived about where to park their car, how to find their campsite, the deets on volunteering, and the importance of the Ten Principles of Burning Man. While it does involve a significant amount of contact and engagement with other humans, volunteering with Greeters does not require being the peppiest person in Peppington! We’re looking for normal friendly people, not Stepford Burners.
Greeters meet behind the small stage, adjacent to the burn field. You should anticipate being on your feet (or your transportational equivalent) for most and possibly all of your shift. Greeters have access to nearby shade, but most of your time engaging new arrivals will be in the open air.
Good to bring: comfy shoes, water, and protection from the sun (e.g. sunscreen, umbrella, etc).
