Volunteering

GR-Comic-con Text-Logo Color bannerThe Grand Rapids Comic-Con believes that “it takes a village” for an event of this nature to happen successfully.

Volunteer And Be A Part Of A Great Event!

The volunteer application is now closed! Please visit us at event to see if we need any more volunteers, or sign up for information for next year!

Contribute to the popular arts community, make friends, and have a great time doing so! The Grand Rapids Comic-Con is always looking for volunteers to help with Hollywood celebrities and nationally known comic artists as well as programming and gaming room needs.

We ask that all volunteers be over the age of 18. We also ask that each volunteer be hard working, cooperative, and always wearing a smile.

Just a couple of things in regards to volunteers:

1. We are offering ticket reimbursement for a three-day pass for volunteering this year! To qualify for a full reimbursement, you must have pre-registered and work a minimum of eight hours. We will reimburse your full three-day pass on the Sunday afternoon of November 23 in the form of a check if you complete your agreed upon time slots.

2. Because we are offering reimbursement and because of labor laws, you must be at least 18 years old by the convention to volunteer. We’ll be looking in depth at other options for younger volunteers, but for now this is the way it is. Sorry!

3.  We ask that each volunteer be hard working, cooperative, and always wearing a smile.

After your application is submitted, you’ll receive a confirmation email. If you don’t receive one within a day or two, check your spam. If it’s not there, or you have any other questions feel free to contact Volunteer Coordinator Sara Gensterblum at volunteers@grcomiccon.com and she will get back to you as soon as she can.
