How volunteering helps the ballet
SA Met Ballet relies heavily on the support of the San Antonio community volunteers. There are a great many ways in which an individual or group can support the company. Some jobs require a creative knack (such as Sewing or Graphic Design). Sometimes we just need another pair of hands to make this organization successful. If EVERYONE helps a little, then a great deal can be accomplished. Volunteer Positions include: Wardrobe Construction and Maintenance * Advertising Committee * Ushering * Fundraising Committee * Historian * Set Design, Construction and Transportation * and Office Support - to name a few! If you have an hour or ten - fill out this form to lend your support.
