Without volunteers, there would be no Event: PreHeat or AfterBurn. Did you know that the number of tickets available is not dependent on the size of the venue, but is determined by the number of volunteers who sign up for shifts before the gate opens?
Volunteering is not only one of our principles but is also crucial to the success of our events (ie: Burns – PreHeat & AfterBurn) and the organization (Burnt Oranges, Inc.). As a new objective to be more proactive in volunteer recruitment, we are implementing this form to learn more about your interests, skills and preferences.
Please complete the form here and a team lead or volunteer coordinator will contact you to sign you up for your shifts.
You are appreciated!
Volunteer Resources & Team Leads
There’s a volunteer role to appeal to everyone. Here’s a quick reference guide to PreHeat and AfterBurn departments:
Earth Guardians are an outreach and communications group whose mission is to educate and inspire Burning Man participants to Leave No Trace (LNT) at the event.
LEAVE NO TRACE
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
Here at Afterburn, our volunteers practice this principle throughout by removing any MOOP (Matter Out of Place) and placing it in the proper receptacle; or some may repurpose it for an art installation next year!
