We ask for approximately six hours of volunteer time during the weekend; most tasks occur outside of dancing time. Activities include: dishwashing, kitchen work, and food preparation, floor sweeping, setting up tables, helping with snacks and final clean up on Sunday. Chatting, singing and friend-making encouraged while volunteering! Volunteers attend at a reduced rate ($105 CAD/$85 USD).
**PLEASE NOTE** as of 2.15.2019 all of the “non-youth” volunteer spots have been filled. If you are over 35 and wish to be placed on a waitlist for a volunteer spot you can let us know on the registration form.
In an effort to encourage and enable youth participation at Ooh La La! we are reserving a certain number of these volunteer slots exclusively for young people. Even though we’re all young at heart, for the purposes of these positions, we will consider “youth” to include folks who are 35 or under. If you qualify, please let us know on your registration form and we will follow up with you.
*New this year: We are aware that college students and other youth may be in the process of lining up summer engagements and may be unsure this early in the year whether they can commit to a volunteer spot at Ooh La La. We have adapted our registration policy so that youth volunteers who are in this situation will have a grace period, extending until May 15, during which we will hold their spot without payment. We ask that you let us know as soon as possible as your summer plans solidify so that we may fill your spot if you can’t come.
Please contact our volunteer coordinator, Mary Wesley, with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
