    Street team volunteer positions

    Street team volunteers come to the festival office in the weeks before the festival and pick up posters and postcards to distribute around the Baltimore metropolitan area. Street team volunteers get the chance to earn their vouchers ahead of the festival! Vouchers will be determined by the amount of poster and postcards distributed by each volunteer. Street team volunteers are welcome to still help in other roles during the festival.
