MIJF is extremely fortunate to have an ongoing volunteer program that plays an important role in the successful delivery of each Festival.

2017 saw nearly 200 volunteers involved in artist minding, driving, program distribution, office support, front-of-house management, photography, ticketing and event delivery.

Volunteers represent a wide range of ages, cultural backgrounds, life stage and demographics, all drawn together by a common love for jazz.

The Festival’s volunteer program is reviewed annually against Volunteering Australia’s National Standards for Volunteer Involvement, in order to attract, manage, recognise and retain volunteers and enable them to get the most out of their experience as a volunteer with the Festival.
