We need you!

Help us help you!
Every convention is backed by a dedicated team of Volunteers and without them, the convention could not function properly. We don’t ask much from our Volunteers we just ask that you come willing to work. Don’t worry, you’ll still have plenty of time to check out the panels, and see friends!
  • The only requirement to volunteer is that you need to be over the age of 16.
  • You are expected to work a total of 12 hours over the three day weekend.
  • Sign up early and respond to emails in order to guarantee a free pass.
  • Volunteer signups may be cut off beginning to mid-November depending on the number of people who sign up and the number of shifts that are on the volunteer schedule.


  • Badge Checking


  • Line Control


  • Registration


  • Customer Service


  • Audio/Visual


  • Programming/Events


  • Gopher/Runner


  • Photography/Videography
  • There are opportunities to change your shift when the schedule is emailed beforehand, but the schedule is finalized the Wednesday before the convention starts, and you will no longer have an opportunity to change your shifts.
  • You are expected to attend all of the shifts you are scheduled, if you do not show up without notice, your shift will be given to someone else.
  • People who skip shifts without informing the Volunteer Director or the Volunteer Assistant, will not be allowed to volunteer for Yama-Con again.
  • Volunteering at Yama-Con can be a fun and rewarding experience, but you ARE expected to work.
  • By volunteering you are given an opportunity to help Yama-Con run efficiently and grow each year.
