Volunteers are the driving force behind the arts!

Sign up to be a part of our Volunteer Network to receive information about volunteer opportunities with NYA and our partners.

In Toronto, volunteers contribute thousands of hours annually to make arts productions possible. From cultural activities like Cultura (our yearly summer festival), to events such as Culture Days, volunteer participation allows community to get involved and plays a vital role in the sector. NYA provides a chance for volunteers to develop skills while connecting with and contributing to the development of the North York arts community.
