Weekly Music or Dance Workshop Team Member

StarJam is a fun, creative and positive not-for-profit that is changing the way New Zealanders view disability by helping young people with disabilities unleash their potential through musical performance.
We believe anything is possible and our weekly music-based workshops support Jammers (young people living with any disability aged 6 – 25) to discover their unique talents, in their own way and time.


We are looking for volunteers to help out at our weekly Mosgiel workshop on a Tuesday evening. We have 4 workshops across the Dunedin area all held on weeknights from 6.30 – 8.00pm. If the Tuesday in Mosgiel doesn't suit you we would still love you to apply to be on our relief team for other workshops!

There is no musical ability required- just the right attitude!

StarJam Volunteers:

  • Form meaningful connections with Jammers – encourage and inspire them.
  • Are led by a music or dance tutor in a team that supports up to 12 Jammers.
  • Help with set up, pack down and other necessary tasks
  • Are provided thorough training, support and ongoing mentoring
  • Are invited to support at our special events such as Disco's, Performances and our Annual Show

A Police background check is required for this role.

Time commitment

All of our workshops are held on weeknights from 6.30 – 8.00pm, volunteers are asked to be there at 6.15pm. We are looking for volunteers who can commit to one workshop a week during the StarJam term. This is usually the same as the school terms minus the first and last weeks, so 3x 8 week terms and 1x 6 week term at the end of the year.

If committing to a weekly workshop doesn't suit you we still welcome volunteers for our special events such as discos and performances or to be on our weekly workshop relief team. Please check out our other listings!
