Are you interested in becoming a PSFS Coordinator?

PSF Coordinators are committed volunteers who oversee different festival areas. For those coordinators that oversee other volunteers, they are responsible for orienting volunteers after they have checked in at your booth. Coordinators also take part in planning stages of the festival. Check the box below if you would be interested in becoming a PSF coordinator.
