The KYO and its many programs would not be possible without the wonderful contribution of our volunteers!  Come join our family and sink your teeth into a new project – from concert & event assistance to marketing or Gala planning.

We encourage all those interested in volunteering to share a bit about themselves: what interests them, what languages they speak, what hours of the week they prefer to volunteer, and what skill set they enjoy using best. Do you love to type? Get a kick out of numbers? Enjoy working with music? We’ll do our best to accommodate your love with ours.

Some volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to:

  • Board of Directors
  • Board Chair
  • Board Treasurer
  • Office Assistants
  • Concert Lobby Crew (including reception, ushers and stuffing programs)
