I sent an email to volunteers@fanime.com with some questions a couple weeks ago, but they haven't been answered yet.
SO:

1) What is the age limit? I'm 17, is there a parental consent form that needs to be signed?
2) I read somewhere on the forums that setup hours are doubled [1hr of setup = 2hrs towards a badge discount]. Is this still true?
3) I hadn't had the chance to preregister. Can I still do volunteer work on Thursday?
4) If I do setup work, can I earn my hours before I physically purchase my badge?
5) When exactly does setup take place?
6) How exactly is the money refunded after earned by volunteer work?

17 should be fine, and the form for minors consent form is on the Documents page. Print that, complete it, and bring it to when you come to volunteer.

volunteering was a bad experience for me. before you think about volunteering keep this in mind.
most of the time you will be checking badges. it's a pain to sit for 5 hours stright.
if you are 18+ or you're parents don't mind if you stay til midnight then it will be easy for you.
unfortunatly, i am under 18 and i need to be home before 9. finding a job was pretty hard.
i kept going back to the vol. center and there was always nothing. i spend most of
the vol. time checking badges at doors but it gets very boring! i sat in a chair for 7 hours just to try and get my hours done.
in the end i stopped volunteering for the rest of the con. it was hopeless for me.
so just kept that in mind. the volunteer center is also pretty unorganized and unhelpful. if you need your hours done
just get the log and go to the rooms yourself and ask if they need help it's much faster than asking the vol. center.
i just wanted to let you know that. never again am i going to volunteer.
i don't mean to offend the vol. team they work hard. but this is just my opinion.
