Referral: Louder Than A Bomb

Description: ​We are gearing up for Louder Than a Bomb(LTAB), the largest youth poetry festival in the world!!​ We are in need of passionate people that want to support Chicago's youth and make sure that the festival runs smoothly!  
This year marks the festival's 20th anniversary, and we need at least 400 volunteers to make it all happen! Volunteer positions include greeting guests, selling tickets and merchandise, judging for prelims, time keeping, and a few other positions that will be posted on the YCA website.  
LTAB can't exist without volunteers, so we are beyond grateful to those that can assist! Be sure to check back periodically, as we are always adding new dates that may work better with your schedule! There are no prerequisites for any of the volunteer positions, so feel free to spread the word to friends and family alike!  
Happy #LTAB2020
