Volunteering

The choristers of YVT are glad you are visiting this section of our website!  In order to keep our costs as low as possible, we depend on the generosity of our local community.  We have a place for you to help make a difference in the life of our youth.  Our volunteers include students, parents, arts administration student interns, music education students, grandparents, accountants, and others who do not have a family or professional attachment to the choir but want meaningful volunteering in their lives.

Please consider giving your time and expertise to us in one or more of the following ways: 

Rehearsal Attendant
Chaperoning retreats, concerts, tours, festivals
Fundraising Drives
Theory Marking

Concert Team:
Bake Sale
Silent Auction
Advertising and Promotion
Concert Management
Chaperoning
Usher/Front of House
