Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in the Old Town School of Folk Music Volunteer Program. The Old Town School of Folk Music is a not-for-profit organization that relies on the day-to-day participation of volunteers like you for assistance with the various tasks around the School.

Volunteers support the Old Town School in a variety of ways, from assisting with administrative projects, staffing our Resource Center, helping at concerts and special events and more!

Your volunteer experience here starts with an orientation session, so you can learn more about the School's needs and we can learn more about the skills and interests that you're willing to share. Volunteers enjoy flexible scheduling and placement in activities that match their interests and expertise. Orientation sessions are scheduled several times a year, and will be posted on this page — keep checking back if you don't see a date!

Volunteers are a valuable part of the Old Town School community! Any time that you can share, from one evening a month, to several days a week, is greatly appreciated. We would love for you to join the team! Please contact our Volunteer Manager to learn more.

With best regards,
Kaitlin Higgins
Volunteer Manager

Volunteer Orientation

The first step in getting involved with the Old Town School of Folk Music Volunteer Program is to attend an orientation.

After completing orientation, you will have the opportunity to help us work towards our goal of making music accessible to everyone! Additionally, you will have the opportunity to grow as a musician and artist by receiving volunteer points that can be used towards classes and concert purchases.

If you are interested in attending a future orientation, please, fill out the Volunteer application form »

We look forward to seeing you, and we are very excited that you are interested in supporting the Old Town School of Folk Music through volunteering!
