Volunteer Opportunities:
We are excited to share four volunteer opportunities. All volunteers are required to attend an orientation at the Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College on Wednesday, November 7th.

Month-Of: Month-Of volunteers support the Dance/NYC staff as a core member of our team and volunteer between 5-10 hours per week for four weeks at the Dance/NYC office. During the conference, Month-Of volunteers can choose a shift on the day before the event for setup or on the day of the event.

Week-Of: Week-Of volunteers come in for a total of 9 hours over two separate days. The first five-hour shift must take place on the day before the event, on Wednesday, November 7th. The second four-hour shift can take place the week before the event or the day after the event and is flexible upon availability. Tasks include support for administration, production, media editing, post-production, and more.

Day-Of: Day-Of volunteers attend the Conference on Thursday, November 8th, volunteering for a minimum of 4 hours. Volunteers are typically scheduled in workstations, including production areas such as set up, registration, guest relations, photography, and more.

Stage Manager: Stage Manager volunteers will attend the conference on Thursday, November 8th, and are required to be present for the full day of conference activities. Stage Managers will oversee all sessions in a given room, ensuring that events begin and end on time, speakers are present and prepared, fill out tech surveys, post on social media, seating arrangements are changed if needed, and audience members complete and submit surveys.
