The Call for WordFest Volunteers is open! Volunteering at WordFest has many benefits – the greatest of which is that with giving back to the community comes the feeling of satisfaction with your participation. WordFest is a celebration of the community, and in running this Festival of WordPress, it is our volunteers who contribute to the success of this event. 

You can be part of our global fun from the inside! Register now to fill one of our many, varied roles. From emceeing in front of the camera to making the tech magic happen behind a computer, we’ve roles to fit every skill set. 

To learn more about the roles, head to the Call for Volunteers page. To understand more about why we need volunteers and an introduction to our volunteer team, read on.

Why does a virtual event need volunteers?

Although the event is virtual, it is a 24-hour event, and there are still plenty of roles to fill both before and during March 4.

Why volunteers and not paid team members?

WordFest Live has no paid team members. It is delivered by Big Orange Heart, a charity that relies on the generosity of people donating their time and resources. Everyone working on the project is volunteering their time. All funds raised through sponsorship and donations through the event are being dedicated to the further delivery of free well-being and mental health support for the remote working community. register as a volunteer now

What help do we need?

Some of the roles we’re looking for are Emcees, Green Room Monitors, Community Moderators, Communications, Operations, and A/V Producers. 

Our Call for Volunteers page has more detailed descriptions to help guide you to a good fit and enable us to deliver a safe, friendly, and welcoming event for our community. 

What kind of commitment are we looking for?

The event will be divided into 6 segments: Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, South America, and North America. We’ll spend 4 hours in each region and we are asking for a minimum commitment of one region per volunteer

Are there any perks to being a volunteer?

The greatest thing you’ll walk away with is a massive sense of achievement in being part of WordFest Live in the making, but we won’t leave it at that. You’ll be featured in the official volunteers page, be given a lovely virtual ‘volunteer’ badge in your profile, to highlight your support. 

We’re working on a few other ways to thank you, as well.

We hope you choose to join us on March 4 as part of the WordFest Live team!!
