Every year, volunteers give an average of 1400 hours of their their time to support A.B.L.E.’s programs. There are a number of ways to share your skills with A.B.L.E. Read below to see some ideas, or contact us to see how you can get involved.

 

Facilitators

The most popular way to volunteer is to join our team as a Facilitator. Facilitators are an integral part of our ensemble. These volunteers participate side-by-side with A.B.L.E.'s actors with intellectual and developmental disabilities to ensure everyone has a productive, supportive, and fun rehearsal. No formal performance training or experience necessary.

Volunteers for this position must be 18 years or older. Click here to read our facilitator FAQ sheet.


Board of Directors

A.B.L.E. - Artists Breaking Limits & Expectations is an ambitious organization at an exciting phase of expansion seeking committed, diverse, and experienced volunteer Board members to guide the organization and support its growth. Board members work collaboratively to shape policies and strategy for A.B.L.E.’s future, and provide direction and counsel for A.B.L.E. leadership.

Applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis by the Governance Committee and may be submitted any time of year.


Development Committee

This team of volunteers is responsible for hosting fundraising events, soliciting donations, seeking sponsorship opportunities, and assisting with grant applications. We hope to connect A.B.L.E. with the community at large, raise our organizational profile, and raise funds to continue building our program and keep it affordable for participants. 


Front of House

A.B.L.E.’s ensembles produce between 2 - 6 public performances and film screenings each season. Each of these events needs a minimum of 8 front of house volunteers to ensure a warm and welcoming experience for our audiences. In exchange, you’ll receive a complimentary ticket for the show!
