VOLUNTEER THROUGHOUT THE YEAR

There are many rewarding year-round volunteer opportunities available at Ashkenaz, including front of house (ticketing, ushering), street team marketing (flyering, postering) and general office administration. Volunteers are required to arrive 45 minutes to an hour before an event or show begins. As a volunteer, you can also receive complementary entry to Ashkenaz events at which you are working.

We appreciate your interest and would love to have you join our volunteer team, this month or in future. To sign up or for more info, please email shira@ashkenaz.ca or call 416-979-9987.
