Volunteer

The Japan Bowl team is looking for enthusiastic volunteers interested in working with the Japan Bowl team to make the 30th National Japan Bowl a success.

The 30th National Japan Bowl will take place April 21-22, 2022 online using Hopin. Though the platform of the online competition will remain the same, we still need help testing the setup and running the competition. This year we will be asking volunteers to help us test the platform as well as monitor competition rooms during the event.

You do not have to be a Japan Bowl Alumni, nor do you have to be fluent in Japanese or located in the DC area to help out. We love having alumni back to work with us just as much as we love bringing new people closer to the competition.

Volunteers will receive training but should be comfortable with screen-sharing and navigating an online event platform and be enthusiastic about interacting with high school students competing in the Japan Bowl.

All volunteers will receive a Japan Bowl t-shirt and are welcome to attend other competition events and observe rounds when they are not volunteering.
