Volunteer Registration for SXSW and SXSW EDU 2022 is now OPEN! Please follow the steps below to begin your volunteer journey.
SXSW Volunteer Vaccination & COVID-19
Safety is a top priority for SXSW. In support of our volunteers, the Austin community and our guests from around the globe, SXSW is requiring proof of a completed primary vaccination series against Covid-19 prior to attending pre-event volunteer gatherings, and before your first volunteer shift. SXSW will accept all WHO approved COVID-19 vaccinations. It is highly encouraged to receive a booster vaccination, if eligible. Vaccination is safe and effective in preventing severe illness and death. For more information on vaccination, please visit the CDC website.
SXSW Volunteers are asked to comply with current health and hygiene rules, and SXSW’s guidelines regarding masking, proof of vaccination, SXSW’s Health Pledge, and any additional policies in place at the time of the event, which may or may not include COVID-19 testing. We will have more information soon.

Volunteers under the age of 18 years of age will need a parent or legal guardian’s permission to register. Minor volunteers will be prompted during the registration process to have a guardian sign and submit the SXSW Minor Waiver.
