Spirits of the Earth Festival operates entirely on volunteer effort and could not function without help from these generous folks. This event is organized by and for members within the community. Without our volunteers an event of this magnitude would not be possible. We strive to bring the community together, to help us as a whole, to learn and grow not only as people but also as spirits. We depend on the input, assistance, support and hard work of others within the community to bring to you Spirits of the Earth Festival on an annual basis. In an attempt to help the community ascend to a higher understanding we offer a wide range of workshops, rituals, specialized vendors, nightly entertainment and a safe, positive atmosphere for folks to create new bonds and rekindle the old.

We would like to know of, and would appreciate any folks who may be interested in joining our full-time Volunteer staff. While no staff positions are paid, we do like to give something more than our gratitude in the form of discounted admission to our hardest workers. Please find the areas for which volunteers are required, and the dates for our staff meetings below. We would like to thank you all in advance for your interest and continued support. We look forward to working with you, as well as celebrating life and growth within the community.

Please Note: In order to receive workshare discounts, arrangements MUST be made PRIOR to the Festival.


How it Works:

 

ATTENDEES:
Spirits of the Earth Festival asks all registrants to sign up for at least 4 hours of volunteer time, throughout the week, or 2 hours for the weekend attendees. We place all of our part-time volunteers in to a pool, where they sign up for a specific time slot. They then report to the registration table to find out where assistance is needed.

 

CREW LEADERS:
We then have our Crew Leaders. This is our full-time staff which is made up of dedicated members of the Spirits Fest community. They are required to deal with routine matters within their department (see below). They will report to the volunteer coordinator of the ongoing status of their department, and inform them if extra assistance is required. Our full-time staff, are on-call for the entire duration of the festival and are therefore rewarded with free/discounted registration.

 

VOLUNTEER CO-ORDINATOR:
Our Volunteer coordinator, is responsible for ensuring that our Crew Leaders have the manpower required, and to ensure that all requirements are met, in an acceptable and timely fashion.

 

FESTIVAL ORGANIZERS:
Anything unusual or which falls through the cracks are referred to the Festival Organizers, Tameika & Fox, who are accountable for the smooth running of the festival.
