Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL) Volunteer Opportunities allows you to give back to the community in so many ways. Volunteers help support our artistic programs by spending the day or even a few hours that can truly making a difference to the community.

JCAL holds regular and periodic arts exhibitions, performances and special events during the year. Events can range from sit down performances to outdoor festivals. JCAL needs assistance with all aspects of event execution.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
Event volunteers assist on the event day for set-up, guest assistance and registration or clean up. Volunteers may also choose to be involved in event execution plans. Volunteers work under the direction of various JCAL’s staff members, who will provide task-specific training and instruction.

COMMITMENT:
Volunteers will typically be asked to commit at least 3 hours for each event, but this can expand based on the type of event and the volunteer’s level of commitment (Participation on an event planning committee typically requires larger time commitments over several months).

QUALIFICATIONS NEEDED:
Depends on tasks. Computer literate volunteers are preferred. Prior experience working for a non-profit organization’s and/or a special event is a plus.

BENEFITS:
Depending on the type of event, volunteers may be able to attend the event free of charge or at a reduced price. All volunteers are invited will receive our email newsletter. Event volunteers also have the opportunity to learn new skills from professionals, and meet others in the community.
