The city is run and built by volunteers. If you would like to get involved in the creation, running or tear down please fill out an application or contact a volunteer at the event. If you have any questions regarding volunteering please e-mail us @ Snrgvolunteer@gmail.com
Gate: Gate Staff are literally the gatekeeps to a safe and lawful event. They will get people to fill out their forms, present their tickets and get them ready for their adventure and then pass you to the Greeters.
Greeters: Greeters are the “real” introductions to our city. Greeters will welcome you with a hug (if you’d like), a shot (if you’d like), or a spanking (again, if you’d like).
General: Don’t have anything in mind, but just love to help? Well, we will find a place for you!
Ranger: A Rangers job is to uphold the principles of Burning Man. They address safety concerns, mediate disputes, and resolve conflicts. We are looking for not only seasoned Black Rock Rangers, but regional Rangers who are interested in learning how to be mediators in khaki.
Burn Perimeter: The sober heroes of the burn night. These folks make sure all participants are safe during the burn and pyrotechnics.
Sanctuary: Sanctuary is a safe space at SNRG provided for those who need support during times of distress. When things are overwhelming, or you are having uncomfortable experiences we are a judgement free space offering peer-to-peer support.
Any volunteer working 12 hours or more of volunteer shifts during the previous year’s event will be eligible for a 50% discount to this years event. You must sign in and sign out in each department you work to receive credit towards the discount. If you are disruptive or asked to leave a shift by the lead of that department, you will not be credited for that day’s hours. We depend on volunteers to make the event run and keep you safe. Fire perimeter equals 4 hours credit. This policy covers gate, medical, fire perimeter, and specialty. For greeters, only 8 hours can be counted towards this credit! Rangers and sanctuary have their own policy. Contact the appropriate lead for more information. DPW gets their own crappy policy: Feed and booze when spotted. They need it.
