If you are interested in other volunteering opportunities, Wikimania Montreal would love to hear from you! More than a thousand aficionados and knowledge experts from around the world will converge to discuss the future of Wikimedia projects, open and free knowledge, education, discuss issues, report on new projects and approaches, and exchange ideas.

In order to be able to hold such a meeting, a team of volunteers is essential, and this is an opportunity for you to be part of this extraordinary event. Registration for the conference is free of charge for volunteers.

ویکی‌مانیا ۲۰۱۷ به شما نیاز دارد

Tell us your interest in volunteering

چرا من در ویکی‌مانیا شرکت کنم؟

Like Wikipedia itself, Wikimania is run on a not-for-profit basis—it depends on volunteers to make it successful. We need your help to make it happen! Volunteering at Wikimania is a great opportunity to:

  • Give something back to Wikipedia and its sister projects—we all use them every day, but we forget that they are written by volunteers who give their time for free
  • Be part of delivering an ambitious, global event
  • Put something unique on your CV
  • Learn from the community
  • Enjoy the conference when you're off duty
  • Socialize with other volunteers
  • Use your skills to help the not-for-profit Wikimedia movement, for example:
  • social media and outreach
  • journalism and copywriting
  • stage, audio visual and production management
  • event organization and project management
  • leadership and problem solving
  • hospitality and customer service
  • language skills

من چگونه می‌توانم در حین کنفرانس کمک کنم؟

با به اشخاصی نیاز داریم برای کمک در:

  • نظارت نامزدها/تعدیل جلسات
  • ضبط/برای کسانی که می‌خواهند در جلسه شرکت کنند ولی نمی‌توانند در منترال حضور پیدا کنند.
  • کارمندان در میز‌های نام‌نویسی مطمعن می‌شوند که فرآیند به خوبی بر روی غلطک افتاده.
  • کمک کردن به میهمانان تا بتوانند راه‌های خود را پیدا کرده، مانند هتل و وسایل نقلیه عمومی.
  • کارکنانی که در میزهای نام‌نویسی به پرسش‌های عمومی کمک می‌کنند.
  • کمک به مهمانان در هتل‌ها تا از راحتی آن‌ها اطمینان حاصل نمیاییم.
  • و دیگر چیزها!!

Being a Wikimedian may be useful in some roles, but is not a prerequisite to volunteering at Wikimania. Attendees of Wikimania from outside Canada are very welcome to volunteer (language skills would be especially useful), but, as a volunteer-run conference, we do not have the resources to assist with the logistics or cost of international travel.

چگونه داوطلبان کار می‌کنند؟

در اینجا وظایف زیادی وجود دارد، که باعث تغییر شده که هر کس به کاری در این کنفرانس برسد. تغییرات در حدود هر چهار ساعت به عمل می‌انجامد. ما سپاسگذار خواهیم بود برای زمانی که شما در اختیار می‌گذارید.

  • کجا نام‌نویسی کنم؟
  • به چه زبان‌های نیاز دارم؟

چه قدر باید داوطلبانه کار کنم تا به بلیط مجانی ویکی‌مانیا دسترسی پیدا کنم؟ آیا باید غذای خود را بخرم؟

  • What languages do I need to speak? Because of its international nature, volunteers to Wikimania are expected to speak English. Speaking French is also a plus.
  • How long do I have to volunteer to get a free ticket to Wikimania? At least one eight hour shift, but if you can do more that is excellent.
  • Will I have to buy my own food? Volunteers will have access to refreshments and lunch at the conference.
  • Will you pay for my accommodation if I am not from Montreal? No.
  • I am from outside Canada. Can I still volunteer? Will you pay for my travel to Canada? You can still volunteer for Wikimania from abroad. Unfortunately we are unable to provide any help with accommodation or travel for volunteers.
  • Can I still attend sessions if I am volunteering? If you let us know in advance which sessions you are most interested in attending, we will do our best to be flexible.
  • How are the shifts divided in one day? These will be worked out as we get closer to the event.
