Benefits of Volunteering
According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, "The Voluntary Sector is an important contributor to the well-being of families, communities, and individuals across the country."
There are many indirect benefits for those who contribute time and energy through volunteering. It is a great way to make new friends, to develop new skills and abilities, attain valuable employment experience, and to broaden one's perspective.
Volunteers may request 2 complimentary tickets once they have volunteered for 15 events. There are only 4 tickets available per event. First come, first serve. Tickets requests must be submitted to Bernice or Sheila.
Our team of 60 volunteers work over 2,350 hours each year to assist at our events with the running of the coat check, bar and concession, artist merchandise sales, and working as ushers. We cannot host events without volunteers!

Quotes from our Wonderful Volunteers
I volunteer at the Vic Juba Community Theatre for many reasons. Here are a few:
1. I love theatre, especially local theatre. This venue has given many locals a chance to participate.
2. For the theatre to be viable it must have volunteers. As long as I am able I will continue.
3. I am able to watch part of a program when I am ushering. This is often a program that I would not have attended otherwise. I feel that I have an appreciation for music and dance forms that I would not have otherwise.
4. I see and visit people I don't often see at other locations.
5. I meet many very nice people.
6. Appreciation is shown to the volunteers by the Staff, Board, and many of the patrons.
"Service is the rent we pay for our room on Earth"...by Lord Halifax.

We feel this is our way of supporting the theatre.
We like that we can choose the date and times when we can help.
We have met and worked with so many good people.
We like that while working we get to enjoy the talents of those from afar and our local talents.
