Fill out this form to sign up for a shift (or two! ;): http://bit.ly/YxYY005-Volunteer  Our Volunteer Wrangler, will be in touch with you soon!

Volunteer Opportunities:
1. Swag Bag stuffing & Registration setup
Arriving on Thursday? Help us with Thursday night swag bag stuffing & registration setup. 
Club House, first floor. 8:00pm-10:00pm 
Bonus: you get a sneak peek at all the awesome stuff going in your bags.  
 
2. Registration
Want to meet EVERYONE on your first day? Join us for Friday event registration:
2a. Club House, first floor. Shifts between 12:30pm-5:30pm

3. Greeters
Do you know when to hug 'em and when not to hug 'em? Greet your fellow Yaysayers Burning Man style as they arrive on Friday. Make them feel welcome with a hug or a high five and point them in the right direction. 
Right outside the Hotel Lobby front doors. Shifts between 12:30pm-6:30pm.
 
4. Ambassador of Yes!
Are you a YxYY veteran, grok what Yes& is all about, and are good with people? Become an Ambassador of Yes and help us make the landing and entry to YxYY as smooth as possible for newcomers. 
(Details are still forming but you'll be added to a special task force. It will entail some communication before the event and participation throughout the weekend, particularly in the first 24 hours. Be prepared to be matched up with some Newbies on the first day to show them the ropes, introduce them to folks and answer any questions. Throughout the weekend, you can check in with them to ensure they're in the groove and keep your eye out for anyone looking lost.)

Hillary H The Commune (pictured above) - large, light-filled, indoor, air conditioned space near the quiet pool.
Talks, workouts, yoga, and many all-community indoor events can take place here. The rest of the time, that space will have tables & chairs available for smaller sessions and gatherings. Very likely, multiple smaller sessions will be going on here at once as it's one of the few large, air conditioned spaces.

  • The Commune is spoken for for the entirety of Friday, and on Saturday & Sunday evenings
 
The Commune Pool (pictured above) -- the quieter of the two pools. 
There'll be DJs here during the day from 10am-6pm but they know to keep it on the chill side. This pool closes at 2 a.m. There's some lounging areas around this pool but not a ton of lounge chairs. 
 
The Commune Lawn -- near the Commune & Commune Pool.
Outdoor space for lounging in the sun and shade.
 
Hillary H The Swim Club (formerly known as the Moroccan Patio) -- shaded outdoor space w/ table & chairs between the Amigo Room (indoor bar) and the main pool.
Great for small conversation-based sessions and games if you don't mind the heat. Keep in mind that there will be amplified DJ music (thanks to our YxYY volunteer DJs) out there during the day.
 
Amy M The Main Pool -- the party pool & giant hot tub. 
There'll be DJs here during the day from 10am-6pm. It'll stay open until 4a.m. Plenty of lounge chairs, small tables, and sun shades.
 
Hillary H The Amigo Room -- dark, indoor, air-conditioned bar. 
There is a house-system that ipods, ipads & laptops can hook up to for music.

YxYY is DIY & BIBO (brilliance in/brilliance out). You could check last year's wiki for ideas, but we're confident y'all will make this your own! Give each project a heading and a sentence or 5. Or feel free to link out to a new page (which you can create on the fly by typing an @ sign).
 
If your project requires a gathering space, let us know. Here's information on available spaces at the Ace. Please fill out this form if you need to reserve a space for your project or session or if you have any equipment needs that the hotel may be able to acommodate. Amy Muller will be in touch. 
 
Amy M You can discuss your project ideas in the the #005-projects channel in our shiny new YesAndCommunity Slack team too! Or make a channel of your own if there's a lot of folks interested and a lot to discuss & coordinate. (If you're not a member yet, click here: http://yesandyesyes.com/yesand-community-invite)
