Why volunteer – From the volunteers themselves

 “I am so pleased to represent OYR at performances and welcome them and thank the patrons for their support to OYR. I do like to be an ambassador of OYR during performances. And so much more about being involved in different projects with the OYR Staff. There are technical skills involved as well, which I had the opportunity to enhance as learning opportunities. Many growth opportunities which can be applied to other community areas.”

OYR and HPR Volunteer Coordinator,
(volunteering in various capacities for about 20 years)


“High Performance Rodeo was my first volunteer gig. It was what started me volunteering for other organizations I like. One Yellow Rabbit has been the best volunteer gig ever. I’ve been exposed to world-class art, music, and performance. As a citizen, I’m pleased to be volunteering because the Rabbits can put resources into making theatre and not into the support functions that we do as volunteers. Other than altruism, I want Calgary to have a rich arts offering and to be recognized for that. High Performance Rodeo does that. It invites people in from all over. I’ve met amazing people and I feel lucky to have seen the performances I’ve seen, and that I wouldn’t even know about. The Rabbits really make a difference in the community with all of the various events they put on and the wide demographic that come to see performances during the High Performance Rodeo. You see everybody.”

“I've volunteered for many different organizations and OYR comes across as the most passionate group to work with – there's a kind of electricity in the air around the group that makes them fun to be around. It's amazing to work with such a tight-knit, local group. You can really see how even a single volunteer can make a difference.”
