    Yes, but the volunteer must honour his or her commitment before receiving a certificate attesting the hours the volunteer has done. It will be issued by email at the end of the event.

  • Can I choose what I will be doing at the event?

    The assigning of the various duties is done that same morning to ensure the proper coordination of all the volunteers, based on crowds attending the event and the needs.
