Volunteer Application Form: New Year Festival 2019-2020

Your application plays an important role within the structure and functioning of Ängsbacka. We are seeking clear and concise information to be able to welcome you into our shared experience the best possible way.
NOTE: before filling in your application it is essential that you are aware of what's included in the volunteering. Please visit https://www.angsbacka.se/volunteer/volunteer-at-new-year-festival/ to find out.

As a festival volunteer you contribute with 5 hours of working meditation per day. You will have one day off during the festival volunteer camp.

Your spot as a volunteer is not confirmed until we have received your payment. The price is 1950 SEK. If for any reason you cannot pay at this time it is important that you inform the volunteer office at volunteer@angsbacka.se in order to secure your place.

Please add volunteer@angsbacka.se to your contacts to avoid that our confirmation e-mail lands in your spam folder. If you do not hear from us within 14 days, please send us an e-mail.
