Volunteering

Volunteering benefits! (for both Members and Non-Members)

If you are interested in volunteering contact WickedWitted, Indigeo’s Volunteer Coordinator.

2 hours of front of house, set up, or take down gets you a free party ticket, to the party of your choice (not including Conception or special events)!
You read that right: TWO HOURS = FREE TICKET. Volunteer hours are tracked hour for hour.

Set up:

Set up for the parties happens the day of, start time varies depending on what else is going on in the space that day, and the duration of set up varies as well but usually about an hour. To help set up you must be able to carry equipment from the truck up the Victoria Event Center back alley stairs. You will help arrange and put together the equipment where it needs to go on the play floor. All of this is supervised by NomadKing, Indigeo’s Equipment Coordinator, and he will be the one giving directions and checking to make sure the equipment has been put together properly and is safe for use.

Tear down:

Tear down starts at 1:00AM at the end of the party. This includes dismantling the equipment and taking it down the stairs. The slower you go the longer it will take… it’s not rocket science.
For each of the above shifts only 5 volunteers are needed and it is up to Indigeo’s Volunteer Coordinator, to arrange the volunteer schedules.

Front of House:

Each shift lasts for one hour. Please let the Volunteer Coordinator know what you would prefer to do (although we can’t promise you’ll get that), and at what time (again, she’ll try her best). Coat Check … is in charge of checking in peoples coats… duh. There is no set fee, but a suggested donation of $2 is a nice gesture. There is no limit to how many coat hangers a guest can use.

General note about Front of House:
Only the volunteers working their shift in the Front of House area are permitted there. The Volunteer Coordinator, or the Board’s Secretary, Katja_girl, may be there to train volunteers.

When volunteering in Front of House you are by no means restricted to that space. If you feel uncomfortable (with a guest, another volunteer, anything!), or are unsure of what to do in a situation please find a board member or coordinator and we will do our best to help. We check in once and a while; however, there are only a few of us and many things to attend to during the evening. If you need to use the bathroom, go! Need to grab a drink or snack, go! Or better yet do that stuff before your shift. But the bottom line is that if you are feeling uncomfortable, there are resources available to help you. All that being said please don’t leave just because you feel bored and PLEASE arrive on time! You have signed up for a volunteer shift, Indigeo could not run without volunteers!


Food

is provided at the Victoria Event Center primarily for people coming off of the Play Floor. If you have particular dietary requirements, you are more than welcome to bring your own food. If you are interested in helping to prepare and/or manage the food (meaning putting more out as items run out) please contact the Volunteer Coordinator.
