The 17th Toronto Ukrainian Festival will be in the Bloor West Village on September 13-15, 2013.
We are very pleased that you are considering becoming a volunteer for the 17th Annual Toronto Ukrainian Festival. The Festival has always depended on the generous help of the volunteers like you, and it is you who developed the festival from a local community event into the biggest open air Ukrainian Festival in North America.
How Can I become a Volunteer for the Festival?
The best way to become a volunteer for the festival is to register through this website (see the button below) for the particular shift that you would like to have, and the Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to confirm your choice.
NOTE: You'll be placed where most needed. Your preferences will be considered but your skill level matched with the greatest need will determine placement.
Volunteer Orientation Session
All registered volunteers
for 2013 must attend the volunteer orientation in August,
time TBC, where they will have an opportunity to meet
with the staff, to learn about the festival,
programming, their shifts, what is expected from them
and what is expected from the staff. This is the best
opportunity to ask questions.
Sign in / Sign out
Every volunteer must
register (sign in) before performing the shift. To do
so, please arrive to the festival Volunteer Centre
(tent) on Bloor West Street at Windermere Ave. 10
minutes before the beginning of your shift. There you
will meet the Volunteer Coordinator, who will assist
you, so donít hesitate to ask for help.
At the end of the shift
volunteers must sign out from the shift at the same
NOTE: If a volunteer has two or more shifts one after the other, he/she is asked to sign in only once, before the beginning of the first shift, and sign out only after the end of the last shift for that specific day.
If you will be late or would need to cancel or reschedule your shift, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator as soon as possible, preferably at least 24 hours before the beginning of the shift. This will allow us time to find a substitute.
At the time of registration
each volunteer will receive a special Toronto Ukrainian
Festival 2013 Volunteer T-shirt. Please wear this
T-shirt while on your shift. This is for the convenience
of the Festival visitors who will then be able to locate
volunteers and staff without difficulty.
Also please dress
comfortably during the shift, as the shift might require
certain physical work. Keep in mind that if your shift
is outdoors, having a hat, sunglasses and the sun block
might be a sound idea. An umbrella or raincoat could
come in handy as well.
Every volunteer who spends a
minimum of four hours on the festival shifts will be
provided with a food coupon. Water for volunteers will
be available at the Volunteer Centre.
No Smoking Policy
It is the policy of the Toronto Ukrainian Festival that Volunteers engaged at the Festival should refrain from smoking while on shifts.
