Call for Board Members

Are you passionate about the arts, helping children and giving back to your community?

Green Fools Theatre is currently seeking new volunteer board members in various positions.

Green Fools is a charitable organization that develops, creates, teaches, and promotes the arts of mask, puppetry, circus, clown, and physical theatre. We create socially empowering work with our theatre creations, we offer workshops to schools and community organizations, and we provide free social circus outreach programs for at-risk, indigenous, new immigrant, and refugee youth. We aspire to be a supportive, productive environment in which diverse children, artists, audiences, and participants can be inspired, grow, create, and evolve.

We are growing quickly and need help from individuals who have relevant skills and interests to aid the organization through this meaningful growth period by ensuring proper governance, quality strategic planning and risk management. Board members are expected to actively contribute to the organization, with their time and skills and help the company to raise funds, whether that be ticket sales to events or leveraging personal network connections for fundraising opportunities.
