Volunteer at Origins
As always, Origins greatly appreciates the time and hard work our volunteers contribute to the show. We couldn’t do it without you! Many of our volunteers have been with us for years – and hopefully will be with us for years to come! All volunteers receive a volunteer T-shirt and are recognized every year at our volunteer party, which happens on the Sunday evening of Origins.
16 hour Origins Volunteers: Each year an attendee registers as a 16-hour volunteer they are compensated for their badge. If a 16 hour volunteer pre-registers, they will have a badge waiting for them at the show. A volunteer may request the location that they wish to work, but it is not guaranteed.
32 hour Origins Volunteers: Each year an attendee registers as a 32-hour volunteer they qualify for their choice of compensation including; vouchers, hotel (with other volunteers), or an additional badge. A volunteer may request the location that they wish to work, but it is not guaranteed. A volunteer may also request a hotel roommate; however, the request must be confirmed as mutual. There is no guarantee Origins will be able to honor rooming requests but we will make every effort to do so.
Little Critter Volunteer Program
Origins is a family-friendly show, so it only makes sense that families can volunteer together! The Little Critter Volunteer Program welcomes children under 13 to join volunteer alongside their guardians. All you have to do is register your child and note that they are participating in the Little Critter program. You will receive more information from our convention coordinator through email.
Anyone who decides to volunteer after the show has started can stop by the show office for availability.
Origins also invites volunteers serve as Area Managers. If you are interested in volunteering as an Assistant or Area Manager please contact our volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
