Volunteer Tips

Dress Appropriately

Dress in layers for all weather possibilities. Many volunteer roles will require being outside and working outside is way more fun when you are dressed appropriately for the weather. That means:

  • Rainwear and waterproof footwear...you just never know if the rain clouds will decide to show up
  • Comfortable footwear
  • Layers that you can put on or take off depending on temperature...the sun has yet to confirm whether it will attend the event or not

Bring your own food and water

Always come prepared to events with a full water bottle and some basic snack items for yourself. We will provide snacks and refreshments, but the timing might not fit with your growling stomach.

Speak up

If you're not fully comfortable with a given task or role, please don't hesitate to speak up and ask. You have the full obligation to voice your concerns and should ask for clarification when needed. Whether it's the heat, heavy lifting or a disgruntled rider, please let your Event Captain know so that the situation can be dealt with as soon as possible.


Be prepared

Arrive on time for your shift having fully read all the materials that have been provided. Arriving fully informed and prepared will add to the enjoyment of your experience as you will be able to directly answer any questions with confidence.
