VOLUNTEERING AT THE FESTIVAL DU LOUP
Volunteers are key to the success of the Festival du Loup. We need strong arms, sharp minds and most importantly, enthusiasm and good will. Join the team!
Secondary school students can earn community service hours needed for their graduation diploma.
For each 3 hour shift, you will receive a $10 coupon that can be put towards purchasing Festival tickets, Festival merchandise, or items at the Festival's bar.
Snacks are provided during your volunteer shifts.
All volunteers are invited to a follow-up gathering in the weeks following the Festival (date to be determined).
