Volunteers

Volunteers play a vital role to the success of El Sistema Oklahoma. Volunteers support our program in many ways and you do not need any musical experience to serve at El Sistema Oklahoma. All you need is a love for children and a heart for service. Our volunteers serve as an extension of our staff and are critical to ensuring that our children are successful. Volunteers are a valued part of our El Sistema Oklahoma team.

El Sistema Oklahoma needs volunteers every day, Monday through Friday from 3:00pm-6:00pm. Volunteers set their own, flexible schedules. Come every day or only one day a week. Come for the entire time or only an hour. Every bit of time spent volunteering with us is valuable to our children. We do find that our most successful volunteers serve on a regular schedule, as this helps you learn our program and develop relationships with the children, faculty and other volunteers.

Volunteers perform a variety of tasks and often those tasks are dictated by the days of the week or specific time periods of the day, rather than assigning a specific task to you.  For example, in other organizations, you might be able to sign up to serve snacks and only perform that task.  At El Sistema Oklahoma that isn’t always the case. Our most successful volunteers prioritize the needs of the day rather than a specific task.  Our top request of volunteers is that you be flexible in your service to the children and to the program.  We will try to match your skills, strengths and time with our program needs.  Thank you for your interest in El Sistema Oklahoma.

Volunteers consent to a background check prior to serving on site with the children. This background check is processed free of charge to volunteers.
