Boxwood Canada

Work Study


Positions available - Application required

Many hands make light work, and new friends. Boxwood's Work-Study program is a great way to be at the center of the festival, meet lots of amazing people, have fun helping out, and reduce the cost of attending. The Work-Study option reduces the overall Full Registration by $300 CAD. Teens 15-18 get a great deal @ $225 CAD / $175 for the whole week! Work-Study participants volunteer roughly 20 hours, amounting to an hourly reduction of approximately $15/hr (CAD). Additionally, Work-Study participants receive priority in our Billeting Program. Tasks relate to initial food prep, dining room set-up for meals, kitchen clean-up as well as box office, publicity and logisitcal support. Working on a rotational schedule, students will likely not miss the various festival offerings. Scheduling may be negotiated at the beginning of the week if the student risks missing an event of particular interest.

Most work will take place during the festival week, however there are a few positions for support in the days leading up to the festival. This allows you to complete your work in advance of the festival. See our application form for further details. You'll be sent a link to the Work-Study application after filling out a registration, selecting the Work-Study option.

Work-Study positions are allocated with preference given to teens and young adults, but all are encouraged to apply. The Work-Study tasks are vital to the smooth operation of the festival, and the right mix of skills, ages, and enthusiasm will make for an effective and fun group.

You'll hear from us in short-order. Upon approval and receipt of full registration payment you'll be all set. There are no refunds for Work Study participants after May 1, 2019.

All Work-Study participants MUST be present at 1PM on Sunday July 21 at the Lunenburg District Fire Hall for an orientation and scheduling meeting and to commence work. Please make your travel plans accordingly - later arrivals (except in the case of travel delays) will not be eligible for the Work Study Program. For further information contact us by e.mail.
