INFORMATION SERVICES TEAM
NOTE: This team is currently only accepting application for virtual volunteers or returning in-person volunteers.
The Information Services Team are the folks with all the answers! They work at information booths around the site and are responsible for answering patron questions and selling merchandise. In addition to providing fringers with access to information and opportunities to support the Fringe in-person, they also respond to inquiries through an online chat program on our website.
For 2021, we are creating in-person and virtual volunteer positions on the Information Services Team. In-person volunteers work in the info tents on the Fringe grounds (similar to previous years). Virtual volunteers work from the comfort of their own home and respond to patron inquiries received through the online live-chat program.
