Volunteer Specialist CoP: Making Volunteering Accessible

The Edmonton Fringe is North America’s largest, longest-running Fringe Theatre Festival and relies on the support of up to 1,000 volunteers to make the magic happen. In 2023, the Fringe created a Volunteer Accessibility Team who were responsible for leading their new Buddy Program. A program designed to connect volunteers who might need support with another volunteer, we connect with Drew and Brooke from the Fringe Team as they tell us why accessibility is an important consideration for your volunteer program practices.
