People living in West Leeds can play a part in a year-long celebration of culture in the city by volunteering.
Leeds 2023 has launched a major volunteer recruitment drive across the city, with more than 1,000 opportunities available for people of all ages and backgrounds.
There are a whole range of roles available including stewarding events, supporting artists and working in the Leeds 2023 HQ or in communities across Leeds. Volunteers can offer as much or as little time as they have available and full training will be provided.
Volunteering lead Katie Atkins: “There’ll be loads of amazing opportunities to get closer to the events during 2023, whether you’re interested in dance, art, theatre or sport and food and drink festivals.
“You’ll be able to choose the kinds of projects you’re interested in and give as much time throughout the year as you like.
“Whether you’re up for sharing your passion for the city with the public, getting stuck in to shaping our events behind the scenes, or supporting and managing amazing teams of volunteers, we want to hear from people from all across the city, of all ages and background.”
Applicants set up a volunteering account through the LEEDS 2023 website and after submitting their application each person will go through a selection process including meeting the team and attending an induction.
