ESA heavily depends on volunteers, and just like every year we’re asking you to help out! Do you want to help us make the next ESA the best one yet?

To apply for volunteering you do so through our user hub.

Volunteering applications typically open 13 weeks before the event, or around about the stage that first cuts are made. The application window is about one month.

As part of the acceptance process, volunteers will be screened by Safety & Security.

Fundraising Team

Donation Reading

The voices of every donation, responsible for hyping up viewers, promoting our sponsors and prizes throughout the event.

Donation Screening

Those with prior ESA experience will also be given time in this supervisory role, screening donations for suitability while guiding new donation readers in their job.

Contact Metako#1683 if you have any questions regarding fundraising, reading or screening.

Tech Team

Tech keeps the stream running smoothly. If you have experience in production, whether on the audio or video side of it, or just a knack for it and a craving to learn more, then please apply to become a tech volunteer.

Our old website has some more info
