Volunteer Opportunities Throughout the Year
There are a variety of available volunteer opportunities throughout the year, and we've got jobs to meet many different interests, skill sets, and time commitments. Below are just a few of the volunteer opportunities available.
The Props Crew works during the months prior to competition season to design and build the necessary set props for each of the individual shows. Good with a hammer? Have an engineering mind? Love to paint? Maybe there's a place for you here!
We always need competition chaperones to keep a general eye out for our students throughout the day - in homerooms, the auditorium, etc. Duties would include riding the bus with the students as well as taking attendance and making sure our students are safe and accounted for.
The costume team is made of a lot of people with totally different skill sets. While sewing is a much needed costume skill, there are also hundreds of costume pieces that need to be labeled - something you don't have to know how to sew to do! If you can't sew, but are comfortable with a needle and thread, there are always plenty of hems to be fixed and/or buttons and snaps to be sewn on.
Provide meals for directors and choreographers for choreography and clean-up days.
Snack Bags & Special Competition Events
Put together snack bags and special items/events for out-of-town competitions. This may include decorating the music hallway or creating a special send-off or welcome home for our choirs.

Volunteer Opportunities at MW Music Lives
Millard West Music Lives is our annual show choir competition hosted in January by Millard West Show Choirs. This electrifying competition is our program's largest fundraiser of the year and requires a lot of willing hands and feet to execute.
In the months leading up to Music Lives, Committee Chairpeople meet to plan competition events and details. On the day of the competition, each show choir family is expected to contribute to the event by volunteering.
Online signups for parent volunteer opportunities for Music Lives will be open in December. Students will be assigned a volunteer shift for the day, and that schedule will be released in January.
