WELCOME to the Mission Folk Music Festival!
Welcome to the Mission Folk Music Festival Volunteer Sign Up Page!
It’s no secret that the Mission Folk Music Festival is bursting with pride over its volunteer community. Friendships and great music continue to bring together a community of volunteers dedicated to planning and producing a world-class event. Volunteering with the Mission Folk Music Festival is a rewarding experience and a great way to support the Festival!
The Mission Folk Music Festival is an inclusive, welcoming community that celebrates music, dance, stories and craft in ways that honour tradition and creativity. It is situated within the unceded traditional territory of the Kwantlen, Matsqui, and Leq’ a: mel First Nations, among the Stó: lō peoples. Leq’ a: mel, meaning ‘the level place where people meet’, is the origin place of the Halq’ emeylem language. We express our gratitude and respect for the honour of living and working in this territory.
We ask all volunteers to agree to our Code of Conduct prior to filling in the Application form. Please read the following and click agree below.
Volunteer Code of Conduct
1. All volunteers have the right to be treated with respect; in return we expect volunteers to treat fellow volunteers, coordinators, performers, festival patrons, and the Fraser Valley Heritage Park with respect. The Mission Folk Music Festival reminds volunteers it is a safe place for all members of the community.
2. The Mission Folk Music Festival acknowledges the site grounds and its connection to St. Mary’s and the Sto:lo First Nations community. Volunteers will treat the grounds with respect and are asked to not camp on any of the ruins.
3. Volunteers shall make every effort to fulfill responsibilities of the crew membership. Failure to contribute minimum requirements or failure to fulfill shift commitment without prior communication with your coordinator may result in dismissal of the Festival.
4. There shall be no consumption of alcohol by any volunteer while on duty on the Festival site, including the Beer Garden. Doing so may result in removal of your volunteer pass.
5. There shall be no consumption of illegal substances by any volunteer on the Festival site. Disregarding this regulation will result in immediate dismissal of the volunteer from the Festival site.
6. No volunteers shall use to their own advantage any property or monies belonging to the Festival. Volunteers must be honest and trustworthy.
7. Volunteers must wear their accreditation (wristband and badge) at all times while on shift. Wristbands are not to be removed at any time. We remind volunteers that wristbands are your ticket into the festival gates and will not be replaced.
8. Should a problem arise, resolution should first be directed to your Coordinator, then to the Volunteer Coordinator.
9. If any volunteer acts inappropriately or is in violation of the Code of Conduct they will first receive a verbal warning from their Coordinator. If the behaviour continues or the incident is repeated, the volunteer is subject to suspension and dismissal at the discretion of the Volunteer Coordinator or designate.
