Dedicated volunteers are the lifeblood of the DAREarts team, and play a vital role in helping us achieve our mission.

They help to strengthen communities and ignite change by identifying and responding to community needs, and building bonds between DAREarts and its communities. Without the valuable skills and leadership of our volunteers, we would not be able to reach and inspire as many children as we do.

DAREarts has over 100 dedicated volunteers of all ages that support our work in a variety of ways, ranging from photographers and musicians, to event planners and administrative support.

You can put your skills and experience to work, make new connections, and change the life of a child today.

DAREarts is committed to the safety of all of our people and participants. All Volunteers are required to provide a clear Vulnerable Sector Police Check.
