Volunteering

Our Goal

Volunteering at the Arts Club is an excellent way to meet people, learn new skills, and become involved in the local theatre, arts, and not-for-profit community. We offer opportunities in many areas of our organization – from assisting at special events and fundraisers, office administration, to helping with many other unique projects. As a not-for-profit charity, we are grateful to all our volunteers, past and present, for their time, commitment, enthusiasm and talent. Volunteers are an integral part of the Arts Club and have proved to be invaluable to the success of our company.

The Arts Club’s volunteer program is generously supported by Manulife Financial.

What Do We Do
There are many ways in which you can become involved! Some of our volunteer roles include:

  • Assisting with special events
  • Providing in-office support for various projects and programs
  • Performing receptionist duties
  • Manning the BMO Theatre Centre concierge desk
  • Selling raffle tickets
  • You may also bring your own ideas with you!
Please note: There are currently no opportunities to volunteer in our costumes/production department or for front of house positions (ushering/box office).

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Arts Club. We are currently recruiting enthusiastic people eager to join our team of “flex” concierge desk volunteers!

Our concierge desk volunteers provide a warm, friendly, and welcoming first point of contact for visitors to our building. Our team of flex volunteers fill in for our weekly volunteers, picking up shifts when there are vacancies. Shifts are in 4-hour blocks from Monday to Friday—morning (9 AM–1 PM) and afternoon (1 PM–5 PM).

The ideal candidates will have a wealth of weekday availability and flexibility, as we cannot always predict when there will be vacancies at the desk.

Please note that there are no short-term or seasonal opportunities, as we require concierge desk volunteers on an ongoing basis.

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please contact Heather Kemski at hkemski@artsclub.com to set up an initial meeting.
