Volunteer Opportunities

Community Board

Emerald City Theatre’s Community Board is a collection of individuals dedicated to the strengthening and advancement of ECT and its mission to inspire early learners through play.

Community Board members provide advice, feedback and insight from their respective communities. Members spread across the Chicagoland area – from public schools, private schools, and the civic institutions that embody the ECT community.

  • Attend 3 meetings per year, hosted by ECT
  • Provide occasional advice or feedback to ECT Executive staff and Board of Directors
  • Support ECT programs and fundraising efforts
  • Serve as a company Ambassador, sharing our purpose and mission to those in your community
