Work-Study

Our Work-Study serves two vital purposes.

1. Getting hands-on with TribO makes participation more accessible for folks with more time than money.
2. It also gives something back to all you communitarians who just want to help bring this soulful event back to the world.
We have VERY limited Work-Study at the new site. You get $40 OFF your registration for committing to a 4 hour shift. You are financially responsible if you don’t make your shift. We will invoice you.

To do Work-Study, you MUST plan to attend the entire event. Make NOTE of times if you wish to do set-up or break-down. Rate these jobs from 1 (fave) to 7 (least fave) and we will try to meet your hopes!
