WHAT’S UP, MAHA FAM?
Each year we’ve asked hundreds of friends and fans to help put on Maha, and you’ve answered the call. That’s pretty incredible, because without you, these events couldn’t happen.
Whether you’re new to the group or coming back for more, here’s everything you need to know about volunteering at Maha.
Or, skip straight to the registration page:
A free pass to the music festival (for volunteering shifts on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday) or a free pass to the conference (for volunteering shifts on Thursday)
A 2019 Maha volunteer T-shirt, highly coveted and oh-so fashionable
Early access to next year’s volunteer shifts, so you can grab the one you want
An exclusive invite to next year’s Lineup Announcement Party for Volunteers
All the warm-and-fuzzies knowing you’ve helped a local nonprofit bring thousands of people together to have a freaking wonderful time
HOW TO SIGN UP
The 2019 shift sign-up will open to the general public on April 18 at 7 p.m. CT.
If you were a volunteer in 2018, you get early access to sign-ups starting April 5. Check your inbox for the link.
Our volunteer platform, Volunteer Local, makes everything automatic and easy: signing up and selecting your shift, changing your shift, or canceling your shift can all be done online until the portal closes August 12. After that, you’ll need to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to make changes or cancel your registration. Once you sign up for a shift, you can access the platform here.
Throughout the summer you’ll receive important shift information via email, so make sure you open and read messages from Maha!
Starting the Monday before Maha Festival (August 12), you’ll be asked to securely input your credit or debit card information into our online volunteer portal. Your bank will hold $35 for that week only, and after you attend your shift, the bank will release the $35. If you don’t show up to your shift, you will be charged for this amount.
