Every year, Third Coast selects a cohort of emerging producers to participate in our Volunteer Program, which provides gratis registration to 30 producers, in exchange for working two 4-hour shifts at the Third Coast Conference. Led by Third Coast's Fest & Conference Manager Emily Kennedy, the Conference Volunteer Program offers producers unique opportunities, networking + community at the Third Coast Conference.

The Third Coast Conference Volunteer Program is supported by the Third Coast Fund, an initiative to increase access to Third Coast programming for individuals who demonstrate a strong interest in audio storytelling.
