Doctors Without Borders will be coming to Boulder, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Portland (OR), Oakland, and Santa Monica this fall, and we will need your help!  Please fill out the Forced From Home volunteer sign up form and we will contact you with the next steps. We look forward to seeing you on site!

We are looking for enthusiastic, friendly, and reliable volunteers to help us staff the Forced From Home exhibition and associated events.

Exhibition Volunteers

Exhibition Volunteers will assist in a variety of roles on-site at the exhibition, including: crowd management, visitor registration, virtual reality tent support, and logistics support. There are two volunteer shifts each day of the exhibition. The morning shift is from 8:15 a.m. – 2 p.m. and the afternoon shift is from 1 p.m. – 7 p.m. Those who volunteer for both shifts in a single day will receive a free lunch.

Special skillsets are not required for any of the positions, however, those volunteering on the days before the exhibition dates for “Load-In” days must be comfortable lifting 50 pounds. These roles will involve a lot of physical effort for the setting up of the exhibition.

Forced From Home Pop-Up Volunteers

Pop-Up Volunteers will assist with the administration of virtual reality goggles on our mobile "Pop-Up" truck. The truck will be off-site with our corporate partners and on university campuses.

All volunteers must be at least 18 years old on the day they volunteer for the exhibition. There is no upper age limit to participate, however volunteers should be comfortable being on their feet, potentially in inclement weather while on site.

Doctors Without Borders recognizes the significant value that volunteers contribute to Forced From Home, particularly those who complete multiple shifts. As a thank you to our volunteers, we will offer the following rewards to volunteers based on the number of shifts served:

  • ONE SHIFT – Forced From Home T-Shirt
  • TWO SHIFTS – Free lunch (if both shifts are served on the same day)
  • THREE SHIFTS – Forced From Home Tote Bag
  • FOUR SHIFTS – Google Virtual Reality Cardboard Headset

Please note that all rewards will only be distributed at the exhibition site.

Please fill out the Forced From Home volunteer sign up form and we will be in touch with the next steps.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at FFHVolunteers@newyork.msf.org.

Exhibition Volunteers note:

Doctors Without Borders will not provide housing, visas, or compensation for volunteer positions at the Forced From Home exhibition.
