VOLUNTEER with us
The heart and soul of the Opelika Songwriters Festival is our amazing crew of volunteers! Thank you for your interest in joining our volunteer crew, here is how to get started.
- Create an account through Better Impact, if you haven’t already (this account is permanent for current and future volunteer opportunities). If you volunteered with Opelika Songwriters Festival in 2023 then you already have an account, username, and password.
- Once you’ve created an account, we’ll send you email announcements with information on when volunteer sign-up begins, details on positions, and important dates.
2024 Volunteer Shifts will open January 2024
All volunteers, regardless of their position, are expected to:
- Represent Opelika Songwriters Festival with kindness and integrity.
- Provide a valid email address and phone number for volunteer communications.
- Use the Better Impact scheduling software.
- Have a positive attitude and be adaptable.
- Refrain from consuming alcohol prior to or during your shift.
DISCLAIMER: Many of our volunteer positions require physical activity including standing, walking, and possibly lifting during your shift. Please respect your limitations when considering applying. Thank you for your interest!
WHAT DO VOLUNTEERS GET IN EXCHANGE FOR THEIR TIME AND EFFORT
OSF volunteers who commit to, and work, a minimum of 8-10 hours of “festival shifts” receive a weekend pass that allows them access to all six venues including the main stage throughout the weekend when not volunteering (subject to venue capacity, as with all pass-holders). Training and pre-shift check-in do not apply to your volunteer hours.
