Work Exchange

Thank you for your interest in wanting to work at wcciJAM 2017!
Please note that the work exchange program is not a volunteer position: we pay between $15- $20 per hour worked. Spaces are limited for this job, and we are looking to bring to our team those with a strong work ethic and commitment to the success of the JAM. To officially be accepted, please send an email to the link below, ranking the type of shifts you’d prefer to work in order of preference from 1 to 3. We take WEX applications as soon as the registration opens, but decisions regarding WEX won’t be made until May 15th. If you apply for WEX and are NOT accepted, you may still register for the JAM for the lowest price that was available when we received your application.  If you ARE accepted for team we are asking all WEXers this year to pay a deposit of $135.   We will refund you for the hours you worked once your exchange is complete (If this is not possible for you, please contact us to work out an alternative plan).

Ways to help with wcciJAM 2017:

Registration Team will help to welcome and check in guests when they arrive on site. As part of the registration team, you may will be asked to help welcome, orient, and register all JAM attendees.  A friendly and welcoming demeanor is very important! Familiarity with computers and ability to use excel, google docs, etc. is a must. Be prepared to serve each day of the festival on an AM or PM shift, working a few extra hours at the start of the festival when registration is busiest. 

On-Call/Admin team will help with daily operations throughout the JAM. You may be asked to help in any of the main dance halls, assist teachers, staff, and/or run errands. Whatever comes up, you’ll help with. This is an integral role in helping our event run as smoothly as possible. A flexible and helpful demeanor a must! Event management experience a plus, but not required!

Childcare Team. This year we will be offering Playcare in the small Bancroft Studio all five full days of the event (Thursday 6/29 through Monday 7/3) from 1:15pm to 4:15pm. Previous child care work experience is a MUST.  Please note that this work exchange shift happens during the intensive time block, so you will not be able to participate in the 5 day intensive (if position gets split up between more than one WEXer, you may participate in the drop-in intensive during the days you don’t do childcare). 

Cleaning/Sweeping/Beautification Team makes sure the studios are clean and ready to be danced on!  This is a partial work-exchange with a max of 9 hours, or half off the cost of early registration. 

*Most work hours will be completed in 4-hour shifts over the course of the event.  The WEX team will be paid $15 to $20 per hour – paychecks/cash delivered following the event.
