The Israel Pavilion, sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Edmonton, will be showing off the beauty of Israel and Israeli culture in this year’s Festival yet again through our extravagant cultural display, talented entertainment, and delicious cuisine.
Being a volunteer means enjoying a sense of community, finding new friendships, developing new skills, and being part of an inclusive environment, and that is only the beginning!
Benefits of Volunteering
There are many amazing benefits to being a volunteer! Each volunteer that completes the minimum required hours (1 shift – approx. 5 hours) receives the following:
Snacks & meals during shift(s).
ETS Volunteer Bus Pass (for the Festival dates only; conditions apply).
Scholarship Draw opportunities (must meet eligibility requirements – see Scholarships section).
Returning volunteers get advance opportunity to sign up for the next year’s shifts.
Certificate of Recognition (upon request).
Letter of Recognition (to confirm hours & role(s); upon request).
Opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who love to celebrate culture & diversity.
Opportunity to explore the Festival before or after your volunteer shift and learn about the many cultures that contribute to the Edmonton community.
We have an amazing scholarship program thanks to the generosity of the Edmonton Heritage Days Festival. Scholarship amounts range between $250 - $1000 and are awarded by random draw from all eligible entries.
Scholarship Eligibility Criteria:
Volunteer must be registered in a full-time program at an accredited Canadian post-secondary institution by December 31 of the year of the Festival.
