Volunteer Services Coordinator
Youth Singers (YSC) is one of Calgary’s premiere performing arts education organizations for youth and adults. We have over 500 members, ranging in age from three and a half to senior citizens, and offer music and dance training in 15 different divisions.
Various YSC divisions and choirs rehearse or hold classes five days a week and on many weekends, and we produce two shows at the Jubilee Auditorium each year, in addition to over 75 performances throughout the community each season.
All told, our volunteers (predominantly consisting of our member families) contribute over 25,000 hours annually in areas ranging from rehearsal and performance chaperones to special event planning to theatrical design and production (wardrobe, props, sets, etc.) to organizing our music library to serving on our board of directors and so much more.
Additionally, we have one of the largest bingo programs in the province, which in conjunction with regular casinos provides a substantial portion of our operating funds.
We have an administrative team of nine to 11 people amounting to seven full-time employees, as well as an artistic team of 50 part-time contract choral directors, choreographers, accompanists, theatre arts instructors, composers, arrangers, theatre technicians, and more.
We are a non-profit organization with a strong culture of collaboration and creativity. We have many specialists, in both our administrative and artistic staff, but we all pitch in to make things happen, whether that’s helping a co-worker with a big project, answering the phones, or calling up a contact or vendor that may be slightly outside of our purview.
We are an arts organization that takes great pride in our artistic process and product but understands that our success is underpinned by a strong business sense and administrative backbone. We are a frugal company, looking to stretch our donors’ dollars to the maximum, while still providing a world-class program and experience for both our singers and the professionals who work with them.
The volunteer services coordinator is part of Youth Singers’ administrative support team, working toward the ongoing health, growth, and development of the organization. This position reports directly to the senior manager of people and Education and answers to the senior leadership team of four individuals.
