Volunteer Programs

Last Updated: Nov 08, 2016 01:34PM PST

Anime Expo is possible thanks to the efforts of over 1500 volunteers in over 60 different departments! Volunteers have a unique, insider view of Anime Expo plus a variety of perks and experiences that cannot be found anywhere else. There is no badge purchase necessary to volunteer for AX.

There are currently two volunteer programs for Anime Expo: Attendee Volunteers and AX Volunteers. Where the main difference between the two is the number of volunteer work hours committed and their respective perks. A volunteer committing under 32 hours is an Attendee Volunteer. A volunteer committing 32 or more hours is an AX Volunteer.

Please view the below chart for more information on the perks received for number of hours volunteered.
