I meet such creative, welcoming people. It is truly a happy group!

Ex Fabula would not have made it to Season 14 without its group of dedicated volunteers. Volunteer opportunities include anything from assisting with events to more independent, flexible projects. We hope you’re able to find your niche and contribute your talents to the team.

Before volunteering with us, we ask prospective volunteers to attend an orientation. Click below to RSVP for the next volunteer orientation and become a volunteer! Contact Marissa Cudworth with any questions at marissa@exfabula.org.
