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 additional in-person or online training session specific to their crew, prior to the start of SXSW. Those crews that require volunteers to take additional training will be credited 2 hours on their schedule.
Music Venue Volunteers are required to attend one to two in-person training sessions (date and times TBD.) One training session will be a walk-through of the volunteer's assigned venue. Music Venue 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 Venue Volunteers will also view and complete the online training video and quiz.
OOT Volunteers are not required to attend additional 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.
