Volunteering

Join the 2018 NGC Bocas Lit Fest Team!

We’re recruiting volunteers for the 2018 NGC Bocas Lit Fest!


Interested in joining our 2018 festival team as a volunteer? Go to vctt.org to see all of our volunteer roles and send in your application by 11 March 2018. 

We’re on the look out for enthusiastic book-lovers and students who can volunteer at the NGC Bocas Lit Fest, Wednesday 25 to Sunday 29 April. 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 festival 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. We look specifically for volunteers who are willing and available to join our team for the majority of the Festival. If you’re available to volunteer for a 4 to 6 hour shift on at least 2 days, then send in an application!

This year we’ve partnered with fellow NGO The Volunteer Center of Trinidad & Tobago (VCTT) to help manage our volunteer recruitment system. To see and apply for our volunteer opportunities, please visit our project page and then register with VCTT as a volunteer.
