Wanderlust at The Cosmopolitan will take place September 10-11. The volunteer period for the event runs from Friday, September 9 to Sunday, September 11. The Cosmopolitan
is located in Las Vegas, NV.
What is the time commitment?
Each volunteer will be required to work 1 four-hour shift over the course of the event. Additionally, we request that you spend at least 6 hours promoting the festival either through delivering flyers and posters or through posting to your own social media outlets, such as Facebook, Twitter, or personal blogs.
Can I choose which shifts I work?
We’ll give you the opportunity to provide us with your preferences for shift work, but we can’t guarantee that you’ll get your first choice. We plan to have the shifts scheduled in advance so that you can make arrangements to be available.
How are volunteers selected?
We select volunteers based on a number of criteria, including availability, skills, interest, enthusiasm, and experience. Please fill out the attached form as completely and concisely as possible so that we are able to assign you to the positions we feel you are best suited for. We may also have a quick phone conversation with you to determine the best fit.
Is there an age requirement?
Yes, you must be at least 18 years old to volunteer.
How many volunteer positions are there?
We're looking for approximately 12 volunteers. We’ll keep the Volunteer page updated with current volunteer opportunities.
What do I get for volunteering?
In addition to getting to see the workings of a premiere event, each volunteer will be able to enjoy the practice of 1 yoga class and the sounds of Thievery Corporation. Our sponsor, Gaiam is also happy to provide a free yoga mat to the volunteers. To top it all off, those over 21 will have access to the cocktail session.
Is there an application fee?
Yes, there is a $12 non-refundable application fee to submit and process your application. Additionally, we require that you keep a credit card number on file with us until the completion of the festival. If you neglect to fulfill your scheduled volunteer duties, then your card will be charged $108, which is the approximate cost of the music and yoga tickets provided to you. To date, we've never had to charge anyone -- but let's keep it that way! We know that emergencies do arise and will do our best to work with you – just please be in touch with the volunteer coordinator so that we can make sure all our shifts are covered.
