About the Event
You can make CLAY a success!
Volunteers are a critical part of CLAY, providing first aid support, pastoral care, and assistance with all aspects of event logistics. If you are committed to creating the best CLAY experience for the participants, we want to hear from you.

Please review the roles listed and SHIFTS currently available. When selecting shifts, use the FILTER button to show only the roles or days you are interested in serving. After you have selected a shift(s), you will be asked to complete the rest of the application with your personal information.

NOTE re SHIFT CHOICES: Not all shifts for all roles are currently open. If you are interested in serving a shift in Event Supervision, Ushers, Transportation, or Cafeteria Monitors at any point in the Gathering, please select the only shift available, Aug 20, 2020 8-8:30am.
As the schedule is confirmed (by March 2020), additional shifts/roles specific to the schedule will be posted. Those who indicate interest in these roles will be notified when the full week of shifts are posted and the 8-8:30 shift will be removed.

After submitting this short application, your application will be reviewed. You will be contacted by email to confirm your application and your shifts.

Background Checks:
Volunteers are required to submit a clear Police Information Check and Vulnerable Sector Check. The process and cost for this varies depending on jurisdiction. We will work with all volunteers to provide the necessary paperwork to request the checks required from your local police.
If you have clear checks dated August 01, 2019 or later, you may submit these checks in lieu of having new ones completed. We encourage all volunteers to ensure their checks are completed by June 30, 2020.
All checks will be kept in confidential at sorted securely.
Available Roles
Cafeteria Entrance Monitors
Participants must show their CLAY wristband before entering their designated cafeteria for meals. Volunteers check wrist bands and redirect people as needed. Two volunteers per cafeteria door are needed for each meal. This is a great role to sign up for if you are working another shift just before or after a meal or only have a short period of time.
Good Interpersonal Skills
Event Supervision & Ushers
Event supervisors are responsible for directing participants to and from event spaces, monitoring events, and responding to participant questions about the venue. Ushers are specifically assigned to help with guiding people inside the LGG and worship spaces. All volunteers are responsible for maintaining event spaces, ensuring they are safe, clean, and ready for use by participants.
First Aid
First Aid volunteers provide medical assistance for event participants and volunteers as needed. First Aid shifts are scheduled 24 hours a day, with 2 first aid volunteers per shift. First Aid volunteers must have valid Standard First Aid certification, or more advanced medical training such as LPN, RN, MD, EMT, or Paramedic certification.
Medical Assistance
Information Desk
The information desk is the central place CLAY participants can request assistance. Information volunteers are often asked for updates about CLAY programming, advice on local amenities, and pretty much everything else you can imagine. The event lost and found is kept at the information table as well. Volunteers are welcome to bring a book, knitting, sudoku, etc. to use when the Info Desk is not busy.
