Welcome and thank you for the interest!!
Participation is one of our principles and volunteering is a great way to do that! Plus it’s fun and helps you make friends and learn new skills. Our largest event Saguaro Man requires a lot of volunteers, and there are other opportunities throughout the year.
Are you new to Saguro Man and not sure which team to sign up for? Check out the different departments — there’s something for everyone! Some teams have additional requirements, such as certifications or training, and/or require approval from the team lead, so please read the descriptions in the signup above! If a signup is password protected, please contact the team lead for more information.
Looked through the list of departments and still aren’t sure where you might fit in? Contact our volunteer coordination department!
Please read our Code of Conduct (a PDF file) and, if you haven’t already, the 10 principles of Burning Man. We actually have 11 principles at AZ Burners; the 11th Principle is Consent. A wide variety of people make up AZ Burners, and this framework helps us make our community welcoming and enjoyable.
Other Volunteer Opportunities Throughout the Year
Want to stay up to date on all we are up to? Sign up to receive official announcements by sending a blank email to email@example.com . The announcements are also posted to the Azburners.org homepage , and to the AZBurners Facebook group.
Keep an eye out for calls for volunteers and opportunities to meet local burners. A variety of efforts and smaller events happen throughout the year. Some of these are not centralized through this website. Arizona Burners Without Borders (AZBWB) and the AZ Cacophony Society handle volunteers on their own, yet announce opportunities to this website and to AZ Burners social media. Some AZ Burner social media locations are: AZ Burners group on Facebook, Saguaro Man group on Facebook, Az_Burners on Instagram, and the embarrassingly stale @AzBurners on Twitter. There are additional AZ Burners related groups on Facebook, mostly not official, and some specific to regions in the state. Search them out! And don’t forget this website AzBurners.org.
Talk to people when at an event. Don’t be afraid to volunteer to help if you see an opportunity. Events are dynamic, and prior planning is never fully adequate, so spontaneous offers to help are fantastic!
Keep in mind we are all volunteers. Real life sometimes interrupts things. Our systems do not always work as expected. So don’t despair if you do not get an immediate response to queries. When we ramp up for an event we don’t mess around (well, actually we do mess around), but things get very active, and there will be many ways to jump in.
