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:

  • 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 language_inquiries@japansociety.org.

  • 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 kyamamoto@japansociety.org.

We accept applications at all times, and will contact applicants for interviews as volunteer opportunities become available.
