General Volunteers


General Volunteers are our staff’s extra set of hands during the convention. They help out with the set up and take down of the convention as well!

Volunteer Operations is the department that will guide you through your application, orientation, and receiving your schedule. They’ll also be there to help you with any questions that may arise before, during or after the convention.

Unlike staff, general volunteers have no single position. They help out in various departments to help the con run smoothly. If you want to help make this year’s Otakuthon amazing, sign up and help out! We’d love to have you :)

If you have any questions just reach out to us at

Open volunteer positions

Various volunteer positions are available throughout the convention in many of our departments. The departments include Video Games, Events, Merchandise, Garage Sale etc. These openings depend on our need for extra help during the convention. Volunteers can mark their preferences on their application (See Link Below) and we will try to schedule them accordingly.

A volunteer must be preregistered as an attendee to complete the volunteer application form. The recruitment for volunteers begins at the same time as preregistration for the convention.
