General Information:
Volunteers staff the areas listed below. Sign up for a 4 hour shift on Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday!

Go directly to our on-line sign up at azalohafest.volunteerhub.com for position descriptions and shift times. Volunteers under 18 must complete the paper application form with parents' signature as found here. Volunteer teeshirts are provided as well as refreshments during your shift. Lunch is provided to those who work all day. Parking will be arranged.

The whole ohana can volunteer! While minimum ages are required in some areas, youth are welcome with family members. Service clubs and families wishing to sign up as a group are welcomed. Contact us in early January to make sure there are spots available for the whole group. Groups wishing to work together in one location should look at Thursday SWAT, Keiki Activities, Stage Crews and Soda & Water sales positions. Most of these can easily accommodate groups of four to six...larger groups should contact us in advance.

We will validate service hours for school or other service organizations. Saturday afternoon and Sunday are high need times.  Service during these times is particularly appreciated.

SWAT:"Serve With Aloha Team"
SWAT volunteers don't care where they are stationed or what they are doing, they just want to be helpful.

SWAT Volunteers can serve on Thursday (starting about 3), Friday (shifts all day) or the weekend. SWAT can be assigned to any area, depending upon need, and may even change areas during their shift. SWAT volunteers are flexible, have a 'can-do' attitude and enjoy learning about the various areas that work together to put on a major Festival.

SWAT Volunteers work closely with the Chairs of the various areas they may be assigned to during their shift.
Performances and Stages: Stage Crew
Stage Crew Volunteers assist groups from check-in time through completion of performance and clearing of the dressing room.

Stage Crew Volunteers help solve performers' backstage problems, assist in clean-up of the stage or dressing room areas, keep water coolers filled, help with crowd control, and generally any backstage help that is needed.

Stage Crew Volunteers work closely with Stage Managers and Assistant Stage Managers.
