Volunteer Survival Tips

What to Wear:

Wear loose, comfortable, presentable clothing. At the time you pick up your volunteer credentials, you will be given a volunteer t-shirt identifying you as the most valuable asset to this event, and you should wear it while on duty, and only when on duty. Volunteer shirts should not be worn when you are not working. Khaki shorts, pants, skirts, jeans with no holes, and capris are perfectly acceptable apparel for the event. Keep in mind that you will be on your feet during your shift, so make sure you select clothing that is comfortable.

FOOTWEAR SHOULD BE COMFORTABLE FOR WALKING AND STANDING FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME, AND IT SHOULD BE APPROPRIATE FOR INDOOR OR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES.

What to Bring:

  • You may bring your own water, juice or other beverages in plastic bottles, and/or soda pop in cans or plastic bottles. Water will be provided for volunteers. Consumption of alcoholic beverages while on duty is strictly prohibited.
  • If you are an usher and have an extra flashlight to bring along, it will come in very handy.
  • Bring rain gear and sun protection if you are scheduled to work at an outdoor venue.

Other Tips:

  • There will not be any secure area for you to store personal belongings, so do not bring any valuables or large or bulky items. You should plan to only bring what you can fit in your pockets and/or a small fanny pack or backpack.
  • Cell phones and pagers must be off or silenced during movie showings.
  • Children are not allowed to be with you while you are on duty. Please make other arrangements for your children during your shift.
