Volunteers are essential for providing the experience that members, staff and fans expect from WGI.  Please read the following information and if you are interested in volunteering, complete the form at the bottom of the page to tell us more!

  • Hotel accommodations at the Dayton Marriott Hotel compliments of WGI
  • Meals during event times at arenas
  • Credentials that allow you entrance to all venues (week specific)
  • Shuttle transportation from/to airport and hotel AND to each venue
  • Discounts on WGI merchandise
  • Free parking
  • Commemorative Program Book
  • Some, but not all, positions put you near or with a view of unit performances or warm up sites
  • Special WGI event attire
  • Opportunity to join the WGI Scholarship Committee


  • All volunteers must be able to work at least three of the four days.
  • All Volunteers must attend the Volunteer Meeting at 7:00 pm on the Tuesday or Wednesday prior to their first shift – Marriott Hotel (Ballroom)
  • All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.  Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent, or chaperone. For more info contact WGI’s Staffing Coordinator – Julie Noble at volunteer@wgi.org.
  • If your desire is to be with your group or to watch your kid(s) perform, then please, be with your group instead of volunteering.  We are not able to accommodate your schedule if you have any type of competing unit affiliations, and we will not have the means to allow you “time-off” to go see any special performance.
