Volunteer With Us!

Setsucon 2021 will be returning to the Blair County Convention Center for April 9-11, 2021 and will once again need volunteers to make our convention as amazing as it can be. Volunteers are essential for helping the convention run smoothly and efficiently, and we are constantly looking for new people and returning veterans to support us.

We have decided to make several changes to our volunteer system, which will allow for a wider array of volunteering options as well as increased flexibility when determining whether volunteering is right for you.

  1. First, we will be creating a new name for our volunteer program: The Penguin Program
  2. The new Penguin Program will have two main options for volunteering: Penguins and Baby Penguins.
  3. More details on these two options are below, but a general summary is as follows:
    • Penguin level will be similar to our old volunteer system, where you sign up ahead of time on the volunteer page below, pre-register, attend the Friday night training session, volunteer for 8-16 hours, and get cool perks associated with this role.
    • Baby Penguin level will be a new type of volunteering experience, where you sign up at the convention and can help out anywhere from 1-4 hours while you’re there. There will also be some fun benefits for helping out.

Penguin Volunteer: Pre-Register for a weekend badge and sign up to volunteer ahead of time using our volunteer form below.

Being a Penguin level volunteer is a super fun and rewarding experience. Penguin level volunteers can expect to perform positions such as helping with specific events or rooms (e.g., game room, viewings), line control, registration, roaming, badge check, and more. By working in these various roles, you will have the chance to see what it’s like working for a convention, meet new people, and gain new experiences.

Penguin Volunteer Requirements:


If you pre-register for a weekend badge and volunteer the minimum of 8 hours for the weekend:

Baby Penguin Volunteer: Pre-register OR buy an at-con badge (single day or weekend) and sign up to volunteer at the convention in the operations room.

Being a Baby Penguin level volunteer is a great way to help out with the convention on your own time and get a glimpse into the world convention staffing. Baby Penguin level volunteers can expect to perform positions such as helping with specific events or rooms (e.g., game room, viewings), line control, or badge check. People from all experience levels are welcome, and we encourage anyone and everyone to volunteer with us, have some fun, and meet some amazing people while doing so.

Baby Penguin Volunteer Requirements:


If you volunteer for the designated amount of time below, you will receive:

Thank you to everyone who is interested in volunteering. We are incredibly grateful to all levels of Penguin or Baby Penguin volunteers, and cannot put on this convention without you. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Human Resources Coordinator.

* Volunteers who pre-register online via Eventbrite will receive their reimbursement no later than five (5) days after the convention ends as a refund on the card used at checkout. Due to a recent change in Eventbrite refund policies, we are only able to refund the base ticket cost paid for pre-registration without any taxes or fees included.
