Volunteer for Raleigh Supercon

Supercon is grateful for the many volunteers who help us build a strong fan community by expediting check-in, helping with panels, handling guests, monitoring lines, checking props, and so much more.

Our volunteers tell us that making friends is the number one reason they keep coming back, and we try to give volunteers opportunities before, during, and after the event to grow those friendships.

Volunteers get a free t-shirt and earn a free weekend pass when they commit to 10 hours during the convention.

More Info about Volunteering:

As Raleigh Supercon approaches, we are looking for the generosity of volunteers to make this the best Raleigh Supercon yet. We are looking for volunteers who would like to donate time, talent and expertise in order to gain behind the scene access to the convention and an opportunity to meet other volunteers who have the same interests and passions for the comics, anime and pop-culture community.

There are many different opportunities at the con. Some of the volunteer positions call for specific skills and experience, but many will only need enthusiasm, dedication, trust, and creativity. If this sounds like an opportunity for you please complete the Volunteer Form and send it to us. The earlier you send, the better.

If you are interested in an internship with Raleigh Supercon to gain some career experience as a volunteer, please email raleigh@superconventions.com directly with your information. Please describe the skills you have and the skills you’d like to develop.

Online training courses must be completed before volunteers show up to help with the convention. These courses will be available two months before Raleigh Supercon begins.
