What are Community Exchange Volunteer Hours (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.

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 are also often listed on the Volunteer Information Board. 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 CEV hours required is listed beneath every payment option. 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 linked 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.
