Over 200 alumni, students, staff and supporters help this event annually. Without individual help like yours, we wouldn't have made it to our 10th year. So thank you for giving to your community!
Volunteers must be 18 years or older and will receive no monetary compensation for their services.

How do I apply to volunteer?
Save a tree, and fill out the volunteer application. Links are located above.
When and how long are the shifts?
Each shift is 4 hours. However, volunteers are encouraged to sign up for as many shifts as possible. All volunteers must arrive 15 minutes before their shift to check-in, receive a t-shirt, sign a waiver and meet the team's lead.
Where does AutMus most need help?
Every job is as equally important as the next. However, the most assistance is needed during the evening shifts, especially after 10PM. Also, folks over 25 are encouraged to assist later in the evening to help with beer tokens, sales and the ID Check.
What happens after I apply?
By September 26th, you will receive an email with your shift assignment, the time and the location of the volunteer meeting. You will also receive notice of where the volunteer entrance and headquarters are.
On the day of the event, where do I report to?
Parking is available at the campus’ lots. Please use the volunteer entrance. The location will be emailed to you along with your admission ticket.

TAMIU Students and Staff:
By participating in the AutMus Volunteer program, you will receive your assignment through our program. If you are helping to staff a TAMIU student booth that is fundraising, you are volunteering to assist the particular group. Please do not apply to this program if you are helping with student organization fundraising.
I'm trying to apply and the application is not live, what do I do?
If you receive notice that the application is not live, then the volunteer list for AutMus Fest is full and no more applications are being taken.
The TAMIU Alumni Association founded AutMus Fest to help break the financial barriers that prevent our youth from earning a college degree. Approximately 85% of the students are economically disadvantaged. And still today, the event is driven by a volunteer group of alumni, students, staff and friends confirming that AutMus is a viable means of achieving the event's objectives.
Yet, the impact of your support goes further than fulfilling a dream: The University's direct economic impact on the City with student, employee, and visitor spending multiplied with operations, maintenance and construction is $108.6 million and supports 3,325 jobs in the Laredo/Webb County area.
In addition to scholarship opportunities for students, a corporate investment in AutMus also has long term benefits. As Hispanics make up the largest population on campus and also constitute the fastest growing community, they hold an equally impressive purchasing power with a product and corporate loyalty desired by both emerging and established companies.
