We have many volunteer opportunities during Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival, and we need YOU to help make Brave New Voices a success!

Volunteer duties include, but are not limited to: ushering, helping set up, and helping break down for the Quarter Finals, Semi-Finals, and Grand Slam Championship.

In exchange for your time, energy and enthusiasm, you will get to see 500+ AMAZING YOUTH POETS from all over the world, for FREE!

We are looking for 200 hundred judges for bouts.

Additionally, we are looking for volunteers throughout the entire festival (July 16th-20th).

Please forward any volunteer inquiries to Danez Smith at  bnv.volunteer@youthspeaks.org.

Thank you and spread the WORD!
