Volunteers

Volunteers play a critical role at El Sistema Oklahoma performing many essential tasks that ensure our children and faculty can focus on building our community and making beautiful music. We could not accomplish our mission without exceptional volunteers!

El Sistema Oklahoma needs volunteers every day, Monday through Friday between the hours of 2:00pm-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 because of the time you have available to volunteer or that may not be our area of most need. Our most successful volunteers prioritize the needs of the children and site rather than a specific task.  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.
