Are you interested in volunteering for Anime Evolution? Volunteers are the livelihood of our event and make it possible!!! Our passionate AE Staff and Volunteers work throughout the year and at-con to keep Anime Evolution running.

Volunteer Programs

Read below for more information about each program:


Event Volunteer
Event Volunteers assist Staff with a variety of tasks during the convention only and have fewer work requirements. Event Volunteers may be assigned to assist with one or more different departments, for multiple shifts.

Volunteers function as a support to the staff members. They often assist with smaller tasks such as line control, handing out materials, and making deliveries between convention departments


Staff
Staff members are more involved in the planning stages before Anime Evolution, as well as the daily operations during Anime Evolution and other events.

Staff members must put in more hours of work during the convention – 4 – 8 hours total at the very minimum. The work itself is also harder and more demanding. Staff have a higher accountability and responsibility to the convention and its members.

AE staff members may apply to specific departments and assist mainly with the department that they are assigned to.


Please note: while certain members of our team are called "STAFF', we are NOT paid, as per our by-laws. We are 100% volunteer-run and maintained by a non-profit society.
