About the role of Volunteer

Non-Paid Volunteers and Staff are needed for the multiple departments at The Great Philadelphia Comic Con 2018.

The earlier you register to volunteer the better your chances of getting assigned to the department you request.

Thank you for your interest in volunteer opportunities with The Great Philadelphia Comic Con! April 27-29, 2018 at The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.

As The Great Philadelphia Comic Con! approaches, we are looking to the generosity of volunteers to make this the best Philly Comic Con yet. We are looking for volunteers who would like to donate time, talent and expertise in order to gain behind the scene access to the convention and an opportunity to meet other volunteers who have the same interests and passions for the comics, anime and pop-culture community.

There are many different opportunities at the con. Some of the volunteer positions call for specific skills and experience, but many will only need enthusiasm, dedication, trust, and creativity. If this sounds like an opportunity for you please complete the Volunteer Form. The earlier you submit, the better.

All NEW volunteers must attend a training seminar before the show to be able to participate in the show as a volunteer. There will be multiple training events held in the weeks before The Great Philadelphia Comic Con! to give everyone a chance to complete a training session before the convention.

For further information before or after the convention please contact the GPCC volunteer team, via email at Volunteers@philadelphiacomiccon.com.

All volunteers are required to work a minimum of 6 hours per day volunteered in order to receive the volunteer benefits including free admission to the convention, GPCC T-Shirt (1 t-shirt per volunteer) and more. Each volunteer will be expected to check in and out with the Staff Director and the Volunteer Coordinator each day that you volunteer, and single day admission bands will be given each day based on the number of hours worked. After the completion of 12 volunteer hours, a volunteer can earn a weekend pass to the show. Volunteering as a signing assistant requires committing to all three days, for all shifts, unless approved by the Guest Services Manager.


If you are interested in volunteering at the GPCC the following must be completed and understood:
1. A Volunteer form
2. You must be 16 years or older.
3. Volunteer Team t-shirts are to be worn during the shift at all times.
4. Please help promote a safe and healthy environment while volunteering. Refrain from any deliberate act that may create danger, or an unhealthy situation towards any individual. This includes use of illegal drugs, consumption of alcoholic beverages, assaulting another individual or disregarding their safety. If you know of anyone, who might be under the influence or conducting bad behavior, please report to Great Philadelphia Comic Con! staff or security.

Volunteer Program: Most volunteer positions are easy to learn and do not require any previous experience in order to qualify for the assignment. Volunteers assist in all areas of the convention, from  assisting staff, special events, running errands, registration, checking badges, etc.; no task is overlooked or under-appreciated. However, punctuality and maturity are essential.

To start the process please complete this form, and you will be contacted with further instructions!

 

Thank you for taking the time to apply to volunteer for our event!  We realize your time is valuable and hope that you will have a fun time helping make our shows even better!


The GPCC Staff!
