Workplace Volunteerism

For the community, by the community.

Become a WaterFire Providence Volunteer

 “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

– Pablo Picasso

The Workplace Volunteerism program WaterFire Providence offers local companies the opportunity to bring beauty, vitality, and vibrancy to their community.

At WaterFire Providence we offer local businesses and organizations the opportunity to engage in many different dynamic and stimulating hands-on experiences that not only help to develop teamwork and leadership skills, but also allows for employees to use creativity, and build on personal development. Volunteering with WaterFire Providence will help improve your employee’s productivity by giving them a positive outlet to practice cooperation while supporting a popular nonprofit group in their community. Getting involved with the arts at a WaterFire event is the perfect way to highlight your company’s social ethic and efforts in community development.

Volunteers are an integral part of WaterFire. They assist in the creation and production of the event, off-season maintenance/repair of equipment, special projects, and everything in between. Whether members of your staff enjoy rolling up their sleeves and getting their hands dirty, interacting with the community and meeting new people, or putting their talents and skills to use towards special projects, WaterFire offers opportunities that cater to all interests, personalities, and passions.

Partnering with WaterFire through volunteer efforts enhances your organization’s community image, increases networking opportunities, boosts employee morale, and helps your organization receive recognition through a fun and positive experience.
