Volunteer with us

Volunteers are the backbone of Dakshina. We couldn’t offer the many programs we are able to provide to the community without the help of volunteers. Volunteers do a variety of things. Some volunteers have direct contact with people by working on Dakshina’s many outreach and marketing projects. Other volunteers work in a more indirect capacity such as assisting in the office or fundraising. Most of our volunteers are people who have a strong passion for the arts, are artists or used to be artists. Now, they choose to give back by reaching out to others.

As a Dakshina volunteer you will get an opportunity to meet some wonderful people, help us with cutting-edge programs and develop strong project management and non-profit experience. But most importantly, you, the volunteer, share your love, talent, time and energy to help Dakshina provide the best in dance and the arts to the DC Metro area. You are the dance!
