* First Aid: We need doctors, nurses, Paramedics, and certified EMTs to help care for attendees who have medical issues.
* Greeter: Greet attendees and give them a booklet

* Information Booth: Greet & register Hills Alive volunteers and help answer questions about Hills Alive from festival attendees
* Parking: Control access to restricted Artist and Staff parking areas.
* Prayer Tent: If you have a heart to pray for people and/or lead people to Christ, the Prayer Tent would be a great opportunity for you!
* Pre-Festival Administrative Work: We are in need of a few people to work at the station doing clerical work the few weeks prior to Hills Alive
* Professional Services: If you are an electrician, carpenter, caterer or any other professional service provider not mentioned we’d love to have you partner with us to fill needs in those areas.

*Safety/Security Team (18 and older): LAW ENFORCEMENT OR MILITARY BACKGROUND REQUIRED. Help maintain order and proper conduct during event, helping keep aisles clear and guide public away from restricted areas. Must be willing to work full time (6-8 hr shift) Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday.
* Set up: Help set up canopies and fencing, along with other tasks on Friday and/or Saturday in preparation for Hill Alive. These volunteers do not have to set up the stages.
* Spot Light Operator: Run one of the spotlights for the headlining artists on main stage. Experience preferred but will train.
* Stage Crew: THIS IS AN ALL DAY, SATURDAY & SUNDAY, VOLUNTEER POSITION for both Main Stage & Rapid Fire Stage. You will help with load-in/load-out of artist equipment and help with on-stage set changes. Stage crew also helps load-out sound equipment at the end the festival.

* Stage Setup: Volunteers in this area will work with our staging company to set up the main stage on Wednesday at 4pm and/or Thursday all day. Muscles encouraged!
