Volunteer at the Festival

Attention USC Students (and friends)!

Looking for a way to make your mark at the Festival? Sign up to be a volunteer!

There are two ways to participate—

1. USC community volunteering at the USC Communities Tent, focusing on early literacy

Participants receive refreshments, an opportunity to work with young readers, and verified volunteer/community service hours. Volunteers are assigned in 4-hour shifts. For additional information, please contact Patricia Alarcon, email: palarcon@usc.edu.

2. General volunteering through The Los Angeles Times

Volunteers receive free parking, lunch, and a T-shirt, and need to pre-register for one or more 3-4 hour shifts. Pre-registration closes in mid-March so register as soon as possible (the earlier you register, the more choices of shifts you’ll have!)  For additional information, contact Larry Deckel, Volunteer Coordinator, Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, email: festivalofbooks@troutco.com
