Volunteer at Anime Matsuri 2021

Every year Anime Matsuri goes to the next level, and so is our volunteer program. We welcome passionate and motivated individuals that want to voluntarily share the commitment of putting the best Convention ever for thousands of attendees.

There are a few ways you can get involved in AM!

You can either be AM Staff or Volunteer


Experience the convention from a different angle and be part of what makes Anime Matsuri run! Volunteers cover a wide variety of simple positions that anyone can do. This is great for first timers or those that have less time commitment.

  • You must be 18+
  • You must be able to commit to a minimum of 12 hrs of volunteer work before or during the convention weekend. Actual scheduling varies by Department.


You will earn

  • 4-Day Volunteer Badge
  • Exclusive AM Volunteer T-Shirt
  • Access to the Volunteer Lounge resting area


If you are ready for the commitment to volunteer during the year and you are in for responsibility and challenge, we invite you to apply for AM Staff. Staff are responsible for coordinating large projects or departments; the success or failure of Anime Matsuri rests on the shoulders of this group. Staff are expected to show exemplary leadership skills, lead by example, and remain accountable for the success and development of their team.

  • You must be 18+
  • A commitment to work through the entire year & during the convention weekend. It is important to emphasize that AM Staff do not have a set hour commitment, instead, they are committed to the success of their department or project.


The reward of this experience is up to you and your creativity. This is your opportunity to help shape Anime Matsuri while making tons of new friends and developing skills useful for personal and professional development. Here are other perks included for being Staff.

  • 4-Day Staff Badge
  • Exclusive AM Staff T-Shirt
  • Access to the Volunteer Lounge resting area
  • Potential hotel accommodations for the weekend of the convention (must be COVID vaccinated)
  • Food budget provided & allocated by Department Coordinator
