Interested in joining our festival team as a volunteer?
We’re always on the look out for enthusiastic book-lovers and students who can volunteer at the annual NGC Bocas Lit Fest at the end of April, or for other events throughout the year. Volunteers help with set-up and ensure that events run on time, usher authors between events and book signings, answer questions about our programme, manage sales and merchandising, and much more.
There are many perks to being a Bocas volunteer. Our Festival Volunteer badge gives you access to back stage and to our Green Room, and the chance to network with others in the literary world including booksellers, publishers, agents, other volunteers and the Bocas team.
This year we partnered with fellow NGO The Volunteer Center of Trinidad & Tobago (VCTT) to help manage our volunteer recruitment system. You can visit our project page on the VCTT website to see the volunteer roles that we filled for the NGC Bocas Lit Fest 2018, 25 to 29 April.
