Sign Up to Volunteer

Volunteer Registration is now CLOSED for SXSW 2020. Please check back in November 2020 for information on our 2021 event.

Sign Up Process

  1. Review the Volunteer Information & Badges page, to familiarize yourself with the different volunteer opportunities offered.
  2. All volunteers must register on Shiftboard, our online volunteer database. The registration link is below.
  3. Volunteers should have their own email address. Please no sharing of email accounts.
  4. Volunteers under the age of 18 years of age will need a parent or legal guardian’s permission to volunteer. If applicable, SXSW Volunteer Headquarters will provide the consent form when your registration is submitted.
  5. Once your registration is processed, you will be guided through the volunteer scheduling, training, and badge selection process.

Although many volunteer shifts can be scheduled online, we know that having face time with SXSW volunteer managers and staff can be really helpful! Mark your calendars, because our Volunteer Fair is on January 26, 2020, 12PM to 6PM at the Austin Convention Center (500 E. Cesar Chavez). Feel free to stop by and ask questions, talk about schedules, and learn more about the SXSW Volunteer experience.
