Hi - thanks for choosing to apply to be a Winnipeg Folk Festival Apprentice Volunteer!

Thank you for applying for the 2024 Folk Fest Apprentice Crew!! Due to overwhelming popularity, the Apprentice Crew always receives more applicants than we can place.

Apprentices must be at least 13 years old as of January 1st and under 18 years old at the time of the Festival.

Applications received prior to April 14, 2024 will be reviewed and potential apprentices contacted via phone call to discuss their application in advance of a confirmed spot on the crew. Applicants must demonstrate that they can communicate directly with coordinators during this process.

Applications submitted after April 14, 2024 will be kept on the email list for potential 2025 Folk Fest opportunities. All applicants will be notified via email when the crew is filled.

Before we take you to the Apprentice application form, please read and accept these important policies:

Workplace Violence, Harassment and Abuse Policy

Every volunteer of the Winnipeg Folk Festival has the right to work in an environment free from violence, harassment and abuse, and the WFF is committed to providing a respectful and safe workplace for all.

The Winnipeg Folk Festival takes the reporting of incidents of violence, harassment and abuse very seriously. Anyone found to have committed an act of violence, harassment or abuse during their engagement with the Festival will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal.

The WFF encourages individuals to try to resolve issues directly as they arise, with or without assistance from their supervisor. However, the WFF recognizes that in some cases this may not be possible, appropriate or effective, and a formal complaint may be made.

For more information, a complete version of the WFF’s Workplace Violence, Harassment and Abuse Policy will be posted at the Festival office, at the Site Office backstage on the Festival site, and on the Festival’s website.
