Join the McMichael Volunteer Committee
The McMichael Volunteer Committee is a dedicated team of McMichael members, from all walks of life, who share a passion for the arts and are committed to volunteerism. We organize events and raise funds, both to enhance the visitor experience and to support children’s education at the McMichael.
Fundraising is the Committee’s major on-going activity, and over the years we have raised thousands of dollars to support the McMichael in many ways. We support Children’s Education initiatives at the McMichael. We supplement and compliment the programs of the McMichael. We’ve long sponsored the Sunday Concert Series, featuring talented members of CAMMAC, the Canadian Amateur Musicians Association. We’ve financed numerous expenditures at the gallery, including the upgraded Audio Visual equipment in the theatre.
Our most important initiative, however, is our funding of the Visual Outreach Initiative Creating Empowered Students (VOICES) program. Through VOICES, the McMichael Education department and the York Region District School Board work together to deliver an innovative learning opportunity for children. This creative program has been one of our proudest achievements, changing the lives of both the students and teachers involved.
For those who are passionate about Canadian culture and want to contribute to the artistic community, the McMichael Volunteer Committee provides a wonderful opportunity to meet interesting people, develop your skills, enjoy great works of art and most importantly, make a difference.
