Volunteer Job Descriptions
All volunteer shifts run approximately 4:30 to 8:00 PM. Volunteers will receive a YLC Wednesday at the Square t-shirt and fresh beers, soda and water.
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
VIP CHECK-IN VOLUNTEER
VIP check-in volunteers will be stationed at the YLC Membership tent and are responsible for distributing VIP and Media credentials. This is a great shift for positive personalities that excel at customer service. Many of our VIPs are event sponsors and we want them to see the impact of YLC in action. VIP Check-In Volunteers are at the frontlines of that experience! Volunteers will be supplied with a list and instructions each week.
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.
Louisiana Fish Fry Food Hall Volunteer
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!
