All SXSW Volunteers are required to undergo online volunteer training and take a quiz.
Some All-Conference and All-Conference Exclusive Crews will have additional in-person or online training sessions specific to their crew. Crews that require additional training will be credited two hours on their schedule.
Each Music Venue Crew will have additional crew-specific training, whether online or in-person. Due to the reduced hour requirement, Music Venue Volunteers will not receive additional credit for additional training. This training is mandatory and failure to participate could result in loss of volunteer assignment. Out-of-town volunteers are not required to attend in-person training or walkthroughs, but must complete any assigned online training and quiz to be eligible to volunteer.
See crew descriptions for more information about each crew’s training requirements.
