Volunteer at AEGIS 2023
AEGIS works because of volunteer contributions. Each attendee is required to perform one volunteer duty. Below is a schedule for all volunteer Duties and a description of the activities involved for each. Opposite each schedule, there is a blank registry of Volunteer Duties. Once we have received your deposit, you may choose your Volunteer Duty. The first deposit we have received gets first choice, the second deposit we received will get second choice, and so on. These will be updated to the schedule to show what has been taken.
Presenting rituals or workshops may be accepted as Volunteer Duty, if we have sufficient attendees. If attendance is insufficient for all duties, some duties may be longer than listed.
You can request your Volunteer Duty here: AEGISPaganFestSpiritualRetreat@gmail.com
