Institute Lab Volunteers
The Institute’s labs take place throughout the year in Utah and elsewhere. Volunteers play a key role in the Institute’s labs in Utah during the summer months as Production Assistants/Drivers for our lab participants on the mountain as support volunteers, assisting with the set up and breakdown and other administrative tasks. Other labs occasionally require the assistance of volunteers, though typically special recruiting is done in these instances.
Lab Driver Volunteers
Volunteering as a Production Assistant/Drivers will receive shared accommodations in rustic mountain homes during their time at the labs, meals, and travel reimbursements. The length of work days vary for our PA/Drivers, and the work is diverse. During set up, tear down and heavy arrival and departure days, PA/Drivers can expect to work 14 to 18 hours per day. PA/Drivers make daily airport runs, shuttle runs and runs to and from shooting locations around the Sundance Canyon area. We encourage international, out of state and local Utah volunteers to apply. Drivers must have a valid driver’s license, be 21 years of age and have a clean driving record.
The Institute’s labs at Sundance Resort utilize volunteers to help with administrative tasks, with venue set up and tear down, and to assist with events. These volunteers must be local. No housing is provided for support volunteers, and a meal is provided only if the volunteer works a shift longer than four hours.
We are not currently accepting volunteer applications for production crew.
