PLEASE READ BEFORE SIGNING UP!!!

Thank you for volunteering to help with Uprise Festival. Without dedicated, compassionate people like you, we wouldn’t be able to have an Uprise Festival.  This year we are offering 4 1/2 hours shifts. You will be required to work a minimum of two shifts. There are five volunteer options in which you can choose from.  You can pick the times that you would like to work, either Friday or Saturday or both.  We do rely heavily on volunteers, so if you would like to work more than 2 shifts, please write in the comment box at the end of the form which additional shift you would like to work.  Below are a list of areas to volunteer and what they involve.

If you have any questions you can write them in the comment box at the bottom of the volunteer form or email them to the volunteers supervisor, Carla Martin at uprisefestvolunteers@gmail.com

Thank you and we look forward to another great year in 2013!!!
