Volunteering at the #CIG41 National Festival & Tournament is a truly memorable experience for anyone looking to further develop their artistic goals while donating their time to make one of the most magical youth theatre events in Canada come to life!

As a volunteer participating in the CIG Nationals Leadership Program, you will take part in five incredible days of connecting with other like-minded people. You’ll join a team of emerging performers, educators, and arts administrators from across Canada while learning from some of the most seasoned trainers and producers. This is the perfect opportunity to hone your improv skills while strengthening a leadership skill of your choice (which might include anything from stage management and theatre production to event management, public speaking, or team-building).

Join us in Ottawa from April 17-22, 2018 at CIG41 for one of the most high-energy, exhilarating and rewarding experiences at this step in your career!
