SWAT TEAM: "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, crowd control, and generally any backstage help that is needed.

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

Keiki Make’n’take Activities 'Activators'
Volunteers assist keiki (kids) and family members to make simple cultural crafts.  All materials are provided.
