The demand for drama volunteers from schools and community centers throughout Philadelphia is extremely high and ASAP Drama works hard to identify and place volunteers in a timely fashion. ASAP Drama asks that all potential club leader volunteers commit to volunteering for at least an hour per week for a minimum of 12-15 weeks, the average length of a semester. ASAP Drama also has one-time opportunities for volunteers! If you are interested in a one-time experience please indicate that in your orientation.

Volunteer drama club leaders must attend a Volunteer Orientation, and the 3-part training modules. In return, ASAP Drama will help volunteers obtain their state mandated clearances for working with youth, provide individualized mentoring in leading programs, placement, ongoing club support, as well as opportunities for additional professional development and events for their students. 

One-time volunteers are able to help provide event support and have the experience limited to one day or a few short days.
