Crucible events are only possible with support from our volunteers. In exchange for donated time, volunteers earn discounts on classes, studio access, and other valuable perks.

We’re looking for folks to help us prep for, run, and break down our event.

To make our event more accessible to our community members, we are also looking for help translating fliers into the most widely spoken languages in the Bay Area:

  • Spanish
  • Mandarin
  • Tagalog
  • Arabic
