Become a WaterFire Providence Volunteer

WaterFire Providence may only be a seasonal production, but to make it happen, we need volunteers year-round. For more information on how you can contribute your time, skills, and talents, email our Volunteer Team.

WaterFire Providence Volunteers are an integral part of the event. They assist in all aspects of event production, special projects, and anything else we dream up.

At any one WaterFire Providence lighting, we need at least 150 volunteers to contribute. Volunteers build, perform, inspire, engage, and enjoy! WaterFire volunteers come from all walks of life, and we appreciate the diversity and talents that are among them. Over the years, a network of volunteers has been established, and we are delighted at the community that they have become.

Begin your volunteer experience with WaterFire Providence by signing up now on our Volunteer HQ.

In between lightings, there are more fun activities for volunteers. Potluck dinners, parties, outings, and projects going on throughout the year. In the off-season, volunteers help with boat-building and repairs, mechanical tasks, fundraising, preparations for the next season, and the occasional special project like sewing or online research.

We welcome you to join us and discover just how much excitement and fun there is in producing such a unique and exciting event! Whether you are a “behind the scenes” kind of person, want to shine in a larger role, or you simply want to experience WaterFire from a new perspective, we would love for you to join us.

Pat Moriarty’s #VolunteerStory

"I look forward to our next fire, the chance to be with our families, our friends, our visitors, our community. The crackling of the wood, the flames, the reflections on the water, and yes, the music. This time as we gather to reflect, to hope, and to heal, let us celebrate the medical teams, the first responders, the grocery workers, the truck drivers, all those whom we have come to better appreciate and rely on. As we peek out from under Crawford Street, let us once again bring light into the darkness, and joy back to our community."

Congratulations on completing your internship Josh!

Our intern Josh completed his internship in the Volunteer Department yesterday. We are so grateful for all of his help and hard work he put into making this department better. Though we were only in the office for a week with him, it was a great week until we quickly adapted to a remote internship. All the way in San Diego Josh made it work. Thank you for bringing your creative ideas 💡 to this department! Congrats as you move onto your senior year at @jwuprovidence 👏 We will miss you!
