Volunteers

Interested in becoming a volunteer? Volunteering to work at A-Kon can be a very rewarding and fun experience. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, make new friends, and learn more about how A-Kon operates. Many of our volunteers come from all over and are fans, leaders, supporters or parents who actively participate in different communities represented at A-Kon. Being a volunteer at A-Kon is also a great way to gain experience and exposure to a variety of different skills that you can apply to your resume or current work environment. We’re always looking for hard working, dedicated individuals who want to broaden their horizons, test their skills, and make a difference for the communities that they belong to.

A-Kon is very friendly to first year volunteers. We are constantly working to improve the volunteer and learning system to make everyone’s volunteer experience the best it can be. We’re always looking for ways to reward exceptional, dedicated and productive volunteers. Many of our current leaders were once entry level volunteers who were recognized for their excellence over time.

Being a volunteer can also be a frustrating process for some. We want all of our volunteers to have time to enjoy the parts of the convention they really look forward to, but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way. The best way to ensure you have a good balance between work and fun is to communicate with your assigned staff coordinator and try to be flexible with the hours you can work.

Volunteering means you are willing to put the work before the fun, so make sure you are prepared to compromise if you have lots of things you want to do.
