Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteer at Karamu

Volunteers Make a Difference

Karamu House has been supported by large numbers of dedicated volunteers since its founding in 1915.  Opportunities for volunteering are as ushers during our performances and special events, as well as involvement with education, fundraising, and other projects.

Ushers, Tour Guides, and More

Hundreds of volunteers provide service-related support each season. Volunteer Ushers participate in “front of house” duties during the mainstage season as Karamu House, as well as during other special events and programming.  Tour Guides lead tours of Karamu House, and Store Volunteers help staff the Anthony (Tony) Smith Gift Shop.

Volunteer Expectations

As an extended member of Karamu House, we want to ensure that our patrons have an excellent experience and ask that our volunteers commit to a team for the entirety of the season and attend necessary orientation and/or trainings as required.
