Volunteers are essential to the success of the African Festival of Arts. They bring an array of talents and expertise. Volunteers assist festival coordinators with a multitude of tasks such as; flier distribution, the pre-festival gala, on the grounds assistance, vendor support, assisting festival patrons, answering questions, and much more!  Festival volunteers are highly visible & valuable. Africa International House, USA, Inc. publicly recognizes the contribution of its volunteers.
