BE PART OF THE #PBKF2017 TEAM

Festival volunteers serve a very important and special role within the PBKF organization. Volunteers are the first point of contact our PBKF guests will have with the Festival so its important they feel welcomed and helped in a friendly manner. Also, there are numerous behind the scene activities that are crucial for the Festival to run smoothly and this could only happen with a special group of team players.
  • Do you enjoy attending Kizomba Festivals?
  • Do you enjoy organizing, coordinating and lending a helping hand?
  • Are you personable and friendly?
  • Do you enjoy being part of the team that makes it all happen?
If you answered YES to the above, then we want you to be on our #PBKF2017VolunteerTeam
