Beer Booth Volunteer

Beer booth volunteers must be at least 21 years of age. A minimum of 10 volunteers are needed at each beer booth. Beer pourers will pour a variety of Abita Beer from the keg into a plastic Abita cup to sell to concert attendees. Beer sales volunteers will use a electronic POS (point-of-sale) system to accept payment from concert attendees in exchange for beer. Beer sellers are asked to serve no more than 2 beers per person at a time. During a shift, you may be asked to switch between beer seller and pourer. Beer Booth volunteers receive a short training before the shift begins to ensure laws, best practices, and safety measures are followed. Corporate Volunteers with enough participants may “adopt” a beer booth as a fun group activity.  CLICK HERE TO APPLY

WRISTBAND Booth Volunteer

Wristband booth volunteers are vitally important to the success of YLC Wednesday at the Square. Volunteers must be comfortable with handling cash for cash wristband sales. Volunteers will be given information to answer concert-goer questions, such as the price range of food and drinks sold during the concert. A minimum of 4 volunteers are needed at this booth. YLC particularly encourages community members in financial industries to participate at this booth. Corporate Volunteers with enough participants may “adopt” booth as a fun group activity.

Check-In Volunteer

Check-in volunteers greet and check in more than 50 volunteers at each concert, and are essential to Wednesday at the Square running smoothly! Volunteers must arrive in time to begin checking in volunteers at 4:30 pm. This process includes: checking volunteer names on the sign-in sheet, issuing volunteer t-shirts, fastening the volunteer beer wristbands on volunteers, and directing volunteers to their designated areas in Lafayette Square. In addition, volunteers will be expected to answer general questions from concert attendees. Before each concert, volunteers will be provided information about the layout of Wednesday at the Square so that they are able to perform these duties.

Volunteers in the Louisiana Fish Fry Food Hall will be facilitating the feeding of our concert-goers - a very important job! These volunteers will be paired with one of our delicious food vendors to accept orders and process payment through the operation of a POS (point-of-sale) tablet that accepts credit cards or special wristbands as payment. These volunteers will receive training in advance of their shift. Up to 14 Louisiana Fish Fry Food Hall volunteers will be needed each week - so get in on the most delicious shift in the Square!

 

merchandise sales
Volunteers at the official YLC Wednesday at the Square merchandise booth will be selling our limited edition 2022 line-up t-shirts (and you'll get one free for volunteering!) and other official merchandise.

You will receive training on this system before your shift.
