What are Community Exchange Volunteer (CEV) hours?

Community Exchange Volunteer Hours (CEV Hours), are hours given to Keshet in
exchange for class time to help offset cost, build community, and further enable access
to dance for everyone.

How are CEV hours fulfilled?
CEV hours are fulfilled by completing tasks and taking advantage of opportunities provided to you by Keshet until your owed hours have been completed. Opportunities to volunteer are emailed regularly and often listed on the Volunteer Information Board at Keshet Center for the Arts. Please check your email regularly for updates.

How are CEV hours tracked?
Volunteers must sign in and log their own hours. Marissa Reynolds, Keshet’s Community Volunteer Manager, will track all of your hours and communicate with you regarding updates, opportunities, hours completed/owed and much more.

How do I know how many CEV hours I owe?
The number of Community Exchange Volunteer Hours required is listed beneath every payment option at the time of registration. Additionally you will be contacted via email by Keshet’s Community Volunteer Manager, Marissa Reynolds, providing details of your purchase, deadlines, and ways in which you can complete your hours.

A google survey will be attached to the email to help Keshet determine the best way to help you finish your hours based on your skills and interests.

When are my CEV hours due? What if I don’t finish them?
You may take as long as you wish to complete your hours. However, you will be unable to purchase another class package until your hours have been completed.

Who will contact me about opportunities, payments, and updates?
Please expect to hear from both Keshet’s Community Volunteer Manager, Marissa Reynolds, regarding volunteer hours and opportunities as well as Keshet’s Community Education and Mixed Ability Program Director, Sadie Gelb, regarding payments.

Are there other ways to volunteer with Keshet?
Yes! Please email Marissa Reynolds at Marissa@KeshetArts.org for more information.
