Volunteer Sign-Up is LIVE!

Hello TBF readers!

Ever wonder how TBF runs so smoothly? Do you recall seeing teens and young adults wearing those colorful TBF t-shirts who are stationed everywhere on Nazareth campus to help you through every part of the TBF process? These lovely people are out TBF volunteers. You can help make TBF the most wonderful event this year by volunteering!

This year we are asking for over 200 volunteers to help make TBF 2016 run smoothly. In case you missed it, TBF 2016 will be held on May 14th, 2016 at Nazareth College. It's FREE to attend!

Who can volunteer?
Teens from grades 6 through 12, college students and adults can volunteer!

How many hours does a TBF volunteer work for?
A TBF volunteer must work a minimum of TWO hours.

What are the different TBF volunteer positions?
  • Author assistants: Help the author(s) with their author panels and the autographing session as well as navigating them around Nazareth campus (Note: You must be available ALL DAY to be an author assistant. You will be stationed with your author from 8:45 am to 5:00 pm. Also author assistant positions are limited)
  • Festival greeters: Welcome all attendees to the festival and answer any questions they have about the process of TBF
  • Festival guides: You will be stationed in a designated area to help lost attendees to author panels, autographing session, cafeteria, bathrooms, etc.
Is there a volunteer meeting?
Yes! You must attend the MANDATORY volunteer meeting. The meeting will be held Tuesday evening on May 10th at Nazareth campus at the ART CENTER (Yes, a new location for training!). You are responsible for your own transportation to and from the mandatory volunteer meeting. If you are unable to attend, you must talk to the TBF Sub-Committee.

Is there a deadline for signing up to be a TBF volunteer?
