Looking for a volunteer opportunity that provides the winning combination of puppets and kids? Join our puppeteer troupe. No experience needed! Training in puppetry skills (based on the Japanese art of Bunraku puppetry) is provided throughout the school year. Individuals can schedule free training sessions with our Master Puppeteers. Volunteer puppeteers commit to train and perform with the troupe for one year, presenting once per month in schools throughout Vermont (as scheduling allows). Volunteers of all ages (14 years and up) and of all backgrounds are welcome.
Located in Williston, Vermont, we offer a safe, convenient and fun environment in which you can work and share your time. Become a “behind the scenes” volunteer! Tasks include: data entry; filing; mailings; typing/computer work and other administrative tasks throughout the year. These volunteer positions are available for ages 13 and up and from all backgrounds and past work experience. For junior and high school students, we are a great way to fulfill your Community Service requirements!
Fundraising helps to keep “the kids” (i.e. puppets) “on the road,” reaching over 10,000 children throughout Vermont each year. Fundraising events ensure that we can continue to offer over 50% of our presentations for free! Take a look at our Events page and let us know if you can help in the pre-production, day of, or post-production of any of our fundraising events. It is an exciting volunteer position, one that allows you to enjoy the special events we hold. Plus, you get to see the puppets perform in their very best outfits!
