Volunteers are an integral part of Carousel Theatre for Young People’s family. Each year, volunteers contribute over 1,500 hours to CTYP – and we are so grateful for their assistance and support!

Being a volunteer is an excellent opportunity for high school students and young adults to gain working experience (letters of reference with total hours volunteered may be requested). Volunteer shifts are generally 3-4 hours in length, but may vary depending on the activity.
