Volunteer Agreement

As a Lightning in a Bottle Volunteer, you are a part of the LIB team. We hope and expect that all Volunteers actively understand and uphold the core Lightning in a Bottle(LIB) commitments and values. LIB's core values are relatively simple: respectful community, sustainable living, and fun. In general, your intentions and actions at the festival (both on shift and off) should always be aligned with expressing and encouraging these values in everything you do. More specifically, we ask that you uphold these values through the following agreements:


1. Attend the Volunteer orientation meet-up at the festival.
We will have 2 meet-ups: one on Wednesday night, (5/23/12) and the other on Thursday night (5/24/11) for everyone to meet members of the LIB staff and to receive a personalized introduction to your LIB volunteer experience and responsibilities. All volunteers are required to attend one of the meet-ups. (if you cannot arrive at the festival on Wednesday or Thursday for the meet-up, you should not apply to volunteer!) I AGREE  
2. Represent the entire LIB team positively by arriving for all shifts on time, sober, excited, and energetic!
  I AGREE  
3. Actively participate in LIB as a Green Guide.
  All volunteers will receive a green guide outlining LIB's green initiatives. Many of these initiatives work on the individual level, requiring all of us to be conscious of our impact by sorting our trash, reducing waste at the festival, and reducing our carbon impact. As a volunteer you will help us educate all attendees by understanding the trash policies and encouraging everyone to contribute to LIB's sustainable and healthy relationship with the festival site and the environment. I AGREE  
4. Treat all festival participants with respect and a positive attitude.
I AGREE
