We are currently looking for enthusiastic volunteers to assist with our community and special events. Please indicate on your application what position appeals to you!
Each year the Jubilee hosts school groups from all over the city, the Jubilee becomes their classroom for a week and we program exciting educational elements. We work to create a sense of ownership; to demystify art for youth and create adults with an investment in art. We work with teachers to provide curriculum driven “hands-on” experiences that are not normally available in a traditional classroom setting. We are seeking volunteers to assist our educational facilitators in managing and engaging students.
This year we have 4 school groups attending our Jube School, we need volunteers to commit to at least 3 days each of those 4 weeks. Typically days start at 10am and end at 2pm. The time commitments can be flexible.
Tasks vary from leading tours, running workshops, assisting educational facilitators with different workshops, providing support for jubilee staff and teachers, cleaning and maintaining supplies, to preparing all required materials for workshops.
Volunteering comes with many perks such as supporting and learning more about the iconic Jubilee Auditorium and the arts community as a whole, meeting interesting and enthusiastic people, adding to your volunteer experience, and enhancing your resume.
