Positive, committed and dependable volunteers are needed! We are excited to be using the Help the Herd system to register and manage our volunteers. All of the information regarding shift times and positions is now housed in this convenient program. You will need to click on the link below to get started by creating a profile. We will consider your application and notify you if you have been approved within one week. Safety is one of our main concerns at the Buttermilk Jamboree, so background checks (based on your name and birthdate that remain in the secure system) will be required for all volunteers. Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering at the Buttermilk Jamboree!

*Previous Year Volunteers will be Notified via Email when Help the Herd goes LIVE.

Once the volunteer schedule goes LIVE in April it’s as easy as:
1. Visit Help the Herd and create a basic profile
2. Find the job that’s right for you, pick your times and click the volunteer boxes for the spots you want
3. Await confirmation!!

When creating a profile, you will be asked to provide your legal name, contact information, birthday (for background checks) and any information that you would like to share about your previous experiences volunteering. Spots in all areas are filling up fast, so sign up today!!

What We Expect of Our Volunteers:

Remember, as a volunteer, you are a representative of the Buttermilk Jamboree and Circle Pines Center. Outside of fulfilling your specific responsibilities, we have some basic expectations of all of our volunteers:

  • Arrive early to your shift, sober and ready to work
  • Smile and be pleasant to others
  • Complete all assigned tasks and be flexible
  • Only wear your volunteer shirt when volunteering
  • Be responsible, respectful, helpful and cooperative
  • Stay hydrated!!

Here are some of the many benefits to volunteering at the Buttermilk Jamboree:

  • ALL volunteers receive Early Entry!
  • One 4 hour shift = 1 Volunteer T-shirt
  • Two or more 4 hour shifts = Volunteer T-shirt & $85 reimbursement

    Full cost of Early Bird Weekend ticket- only available until April 15th

Once you have been a dependable volunteer for 2 years or more, you will be placed on our will-call list after you sign up for your shifts and will not need to purchase a ticket. You will be notified of this when you sign up for your shifts.
