Constellation 2019

Volunteer Coordination

At one time Volunteer Coordination was a department that made sure everyone's outfits were cool. That....didn't really work out that well. So they stopped doing it! Now they do this. The general consensus is that this is a lot more useful.

The Facts

Everyone you see at the event helping Constellation happen-- the people who check your ticket at Gate, the Rangers you see on walkabout, the Department Leads talking on radios and riding golf carts-- is a volunteer. Volunteering is part of burning. It's one of the ways that we become participants rather than consumers during the event. Most of those volunteers take one or two shifts throughout the burn to gift their time and effort to the community, as just one of the many ways that they help create the burn with the wider community. Volunteer Coordination exists to help burners find their place in making the burn happen.

As a volunteer in this role, you'll help burners looking to volunteer to find the departments and shifts that best meet their skillset, schedule, and goals for the burn. You'll also assist with the ongoing task of identifying and fulfilling the changing volunteer needs of each department throughout the event, and distribute volunteering supplies, like badges, emergency sunscreen, and other items of necessity.

Most jobs with Volunteer Coordination happen at Volunteer HQ, the smaller of the two stages on the burn field, with a permanent roof. Because of this, bringing protection from the sun or rain is less of an issue when compared to many other departments. Volunteering here often involves a lot of standing or sitting, but you can also be out and about in the burn if that's more your style.

Most volunteer tasks involve at least a little bit of engagement with people, either giving out info to curious burners or encouraging people to sign up for needed shifts. While absolutely not a requirement, if you enjoy helping people find their "space", Volunteer Coordination may be the department for you.

Shifts with Volunteer Coordination start at Volunteer HQ, on the small stage in the front (aka burn) field.

Good to bring: protection from sun/rain if you'd like to be a "roving recruiter", your rad self
