Volunteer with us! Anyone can contribute to Clowns Without Borders success. Volunteer as a performing artist or contact us for other ways to get involved.
“Working with Clowns Without Borders in the South Sudan was among the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life. I learned a lot about the world and a lot about myself. The Children were amazing.”
About Volunteering as a performer with CWB
CWB has very specific requirements for those wishing to participate in our activities. Unfortunately CWB cannot offer participation to all those wishing to be involved. Please read the following to understand how you might best work with us. In addition, we recommend familiarizing yourself with our past and ongoing projects.
CWB-USA sends small programs into the field using a combination of monies raised by the organization and the participating artists. The overall objective is the creation of laughter in the communities that we visit.
CWB works with:
- Performers who are capable of improvisational physical comedy and/or who have established funny non-verbal routines
- Circus and vaudeville artists with well honed routines.
- Performers who have experience with medium to large size audiences (500-5000)
- Performers whose humor is not dependent on language or American cultural reference (as most places we travel to do not share the English language or American culture).
“Children are ready to be joyful, we just help them find their smiles. This is important work.”
Do you have what it takes to join us as a performer and take your clown around the world?
CWB-USA feels it important to point out that our work need not only cross international borders. So often, right in the very town where we live there are communities in need of CWB-style activities. We encourage all to think globally and act locally. We also encourage groups of performers who feel that they have the stuff and the gumption to head off to some far flung spot on the planet, to plan such an activity. A collaboration with CWB-USA may well be possible, perhaps we can help you discover the contacts needed in the country you wish to travel to. In any case we would love to hear from you, to know what project of social significance you are envisioning, planning or operating.
