All-Conference Volunteers are required to view and complete the online training video and quiz to be eligible to volunteer. Some crews will also have an in-person training session prior to the start of SXSW. Those crews that require volunteers to attend training in person will offer 2 hours of credit for the session.
Music Festival Volunteers are required to attend two in-person training sessions (date and times TBD.) One training session will be a walk-thru of the volunteer's assigned venue. Music Festival Volunteers will not receive hours toward their perk for attending in-person trainings, however both trainings are mandatory and failure to attend could result in loss of volunteer assignment. Music Festival Volunteers will also view and complete the online training video and quiz.
OOT Volunteers are not required to attend in-person training sessions, but must complete the online training video and quiz to be eligible to volunteer.
Volunteers will be provided an online SXSW Volunteer Survival Guide, which will contain helpful information to get volunteers through SXSWeek, as well as descriptions of crews and their responsibilities. Hard copies of the guide will be available at Volunteer Central for those volunteers wishing to pick one up.
