Youth Opportunities


Hey Team Folklorama, if you are between 14-25 years old come catch up with your Folklorama friends at Cultural Connections! Cultural Connections is a FREE social event for Folklorama volunteers ages 14-25. Learn about different cultures through activities and workshops while hanging out with friends, and enjoying free pizza!

The next Cultural Connections will be in the Fall! 



Team Folklorama – Youth Division was created in 2012 to be a platform for Folklorama current and past youth volunteers (ages 14 to 25 years old) to reconnect and stay in touch with each other throughout the year, while continuing their connection to Folklorama.

Team Folklorama year-round activities are designed to: promote Folklorama in the community; provide work experience opportunities; provide mentorship and skill-building opportunities; strengthen bonds within the volunteer community; and develop year-round engagement with Folklorama’s programs and mandate.

Team Folklorama events are held during the course of the year and include volunteering opportunities throughout the city, participating ‘behind the scenes’ at Folklorama Talent events, participating in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program, and fun activity-filled evenings where youth can connect with each other and share in the promotion of culture.

Please feel free to share Team Folklorama information with your friends and fellow youth volunteers. If you would like to get involved with Team Folklorama please contact Rachelle Quilapio via email at or by phone at (204) 982-6213.
