Volunteer Opportunities

Japan Society encourages individuals with interest in Japanese culture and flexible time schedules to consider becoming a volunteer.  Volunteers serve on an “as-needed” basis.  Assignments depend upon the individual volunteer’s area of interest, skills, and availability.  Opportunities include:

  • Lecture Programs – Volunteers assist in ushering, ticket handling, fielding questions, and related activities.  Programs begin at 5:45 pm, Monday to Friday, and occasionally on the weekends.  If you are interested in volunteering at evening Talks+ Programs, contact Anna Cabasso at
  • Language Center Events – Volunteers assist with general office support, language class/event check-ins, and other event-related tasks.  If you are interested in volunteering at the Toyota Language Center/C.V. Starr Library, please email

  • Performing Arts Programs – Volunteers assist in ushering, greeting patrons, and other front-of-house related tasks. If you are interested in volunteering for Performing Arts events, contact the Performing Arts Program at
  • Clerical and Administrative Projects – Volunteers assist staff throughout Japan Society with general office support and special projects.  To apply, email
We accept applications at all times, and will contact applicants for interviews as volunteer opportunities become available.
