2022 Volunteer Sign Up
Volunteer at RiseFest 2022
RiseFest is possible because of the hundreds of amazing volunteers who serve alongside us! Please prayerfully consider joining our incredible volunteer team. We would love your help! If you volunteer for 4 hours, we'll give you a FREE festival ticket and volunteer t-shirt .
There's a volunteer meeting the Thursday before the festival. At the meeting, you will receive your volunteer t-shirt, but not your ticket. You will have to check in at the main gates for your shift. If you can't make the meeting, please check in during the weekend at the main gates to get your t-shirt and ticket. You may not pick up a t-shirt or ticket for another volunteer.
Volunteers must be signed up by 3:00pm on May 16 to guarantee a t-shirt in your size. Online volunteer sign-up will end at 11:30pm on Monday, May 30. Some areas give you the option to choose the shift you would like. Please read carefully, and choose one option.
Thank you for being ready and willing to serve!

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I can't make it to the volunteer meeting?

Your t-shirt can be picked up on Thursday at the volunteer meeting or at the Main Gate on Friday from 3pm-8pm or Saturday from 9am-7pm. If your volunteer shift falls outside of those hours, your area lead will have your t-shirt and your ticket.

How old do you need to be to volunteer?
Each area is different. We ask that all volunteers be 16 or older in most areas. Some areas have requirements of 18 and older (those areas/tickets have the requirements in their ticket description). We do make some exceptions in areas where we can, but the area lead must approve those exceptions.
What if I want to volunteer with my friend? Can we sign up together?
Absolutely! Volunteering is always more fun with a friend! Just sign up for the same area/time and put a note in the comments that you would like to work with your friend. All area leads work hard to ensure you can work together.
What if I can no longer volunteer?
We know that life happens and things come up. If you are no longer able to volunteer, we ask that you cancel your ticket or email email@example.com as soon as you know you have a conflict. This will open up your volunteer spot for someone else to fill.
If you have any additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
