The festival will take place from May 3-14 at Expo Center Sharjah to enhance youth’s confidence and equip them with a diverse range of skills that are beneficial for self-development and character-building.
Individuals between the ages of 18 and 45 who are interested in volunteering are encouraged to register online.
Volunteers will have an essential role in organising and supervising festival activities and providing support and assistance to various teams, including publishers, technical support, and finance.
Volunteers will also be responsible for providing visitors with information on festival activities such as interactive sessions and workshops, and assisting young visitors in exploring books, new releases, and authors.
