SAND Italy Volunteer Application Fee

SAND receives many volunteer applications for its events. We are very grateful of the enthusiasm and support from our community of service-oriented friends and family. In order to sustain the time and energy that goes into processing the volunteer applications, we have added a refundable volunteer application fee of $20. The volunteer registration process is as follows:

STEP 1: Starting Jan 1, 2020, you can complete and submit the application form, even if you have been a volunteer in the past! Keep in mind that this information will be used to create the schedule, so be sure to denote any special interests and skills. In order to apply, you will need to be logged in to your account. If you don't have an account you need to open one. You will hear back from us on an ongoing basis, starting from the month of March.

STEP 2: There is a fee of $20 for submitting your application. If accepted, it is deducted from the registration fee. If not accepted, it will be refunded to you. If you are accepted and then cancel, it will be held by SAND as a cancellation fee. We will only consider applications accompanied by a fee payment. Please pay your fee by clicking "add to cart" then "checkout".

STEP 3: Complete your Volunteer Registration, following the instructions on your acceptance email.

This involves registering as a volunteer, and paying the volunteer registration fee of $420 (minus the application fee). We recommend you do this as soon as the application is accepted, as your position on the volunteer team will not be secured until you have completed this step successfully.

Your volunteer ticket includes 3 delicious meals per day during the event (dinner Jul 14 through breakfast Jul 20).  Additionally, your ticket will cover a team lunch & dinner at the Castle on Jul 13, if you’re there to help with set up.  It also includes a camping spot, and use of bathroom and shower facilities.

Deadline to apply as a volunteer is Apr 15, and once accepted the deadline to register is Jun 15. If you have not registered by the deadline, your spot may be offered to another applicant.
