Then Volunteering at Daku Con may just be for you!
Thank you for wanting to volunteer at Daku Con!
Please note, we are NOT paid. We are 100% volunteer-run at Daku Con (even Staff). “Volunteer” in this context refers to someone who will help watch doors, check badges, assist staff, cover breaks, carry things, and/or complete simple tasks as necessary at the convention. These are the small things that really make this con possible and we are so grateful for our volunteers! Those who meet or exceed expectations are also eligible for a staff promotion at the discretion of the convention directors. It’s a fun time and you meet new people, so if you’re interested please apply!

Volunteers will receive a complimentary day badge each day they volunteer and be provided with snacks and drinks, as well as a special gift at the end of con. Volunteers are given breaks to attend panels, get food, etc.
