Who volunteers for the volunteers? Like, you know?
Well, maybe you friend! As the guy I used to work with on the overnight shift at the print shop used to say, "are you feeling froggy?"
That guy was kind of a jerk. Scratch that. Are you interested in hydrating and feeding the hardest working burners in-- well, not show business I guess. Burn business? Anyway if you're interested, look below for explanations of the "industry terms" used on this sign up sheet.
Constellation loves our volunteers so much that we made a whole department about it! Volunteer Appreciation distributes drinks, snacks, and other miscellaneous items to volunteers on shift, while also preparing meals in the NoVA (Neighborhood of Volunteer Appreciation) kitchen.
Available positions include:
- Meal Lead - you’ll be provided with the meal directions and three volunteers to prep, cook, and clean up during either the morning meal or the 4:20 snack. Our department lead will be on-hand to help answer any questions you may have, but it’ll be a pretty straightforward shift. This is a great position if you enjoy running a camp kitchen or have cooking experience!
- Meal Volunteer - you’ll be working under the direction of the Meal Lead to prep, cook, and clean up during either the morning meal or the 4:20 snack. No cooking experience required.
- Snack Coordinator - you will be responsible for providing snacks, drinks, and other supplies to various teams across the Burn. You’ll have use of a golf cart (driver must be sober!) to check in with our volunteers and make sure they’re well cared for.
Volunteer Appreciation is a great fit for people who communicate gratitude and kindness through acts of service and gift-giving. Kitchen skills are welcome, but they’re not necessary. We’re all about Burners who want to let other people know that their contributions and investment in the community we create are sincerely valued and appreciated.
Volunteers with this role should anticipate being on their feet, either helping in the staff kitchen or traveling around the burn with snacks, beverages, and other useful items to give to other on-duty volunteers. Because of the likelihood of being within our kitchen for at least part of your shift, shoes are required for this job. Minimal clothing is also a requirement for being in the kitchen. Being covered up in a more general way, in case of grease spatter or contact with hot food/water, is highly encouraged. Long sleeves or outsized, flowing clothing is a kitchen fire hazard, so please leave those items at your camp.
Volunteers should report to the Neighborhood of Volunteer Appreciation, located behind the large stage in the front field, to start their shifts.
Good to bring: comfortable shoes, clothing that doesn’t lay too far away from your body as you move.
