Weekly dance workshops for young people with disabilities.

StarJam inspires young people with disabilities (our Jammers) to express themselves through music, dance, singing and performance. Our workshops, gigs and discos are fun and exciting spaces for Jammers to grow in confidence, discover musical and performance talents and make lifelong friends

This is our first workshop opening up in KeriKeri. StarJam has been going for 20years. Last year we opened two workshops in Whang─ürei and now we are branching out further North. Please be in touch if you are interested. 

Your role would be:
  • Monitoring and responding to Jammers physical needs.
  • Ensuring Jammers treat everyone present with respect and kindness.
  • Be aware of StarJam’s values and ensure these are upheld in all of your interactions with StarJam.
  • Liaising between Jammers, their families and StarJam, where appropriate.
  • Any other task that could reasonably be considered to contribute to the well-being and enjoyment of Jammers enrolled in the workshop.
  • Arrive at the venue fifteen minutes prior to the start of the workshop, and remain at the venue until all Jammers are seen safely collected by their parent/caregiver. Provide a report to StarJam by the final day of term.
  • Support the workshop at two gigs and the workshop at a StarJam Disco.
  • Attend the StarJam Summit and support the workshop at the End of Year Concert.
We need volunteers who are available on Wednesdays, once a week from 6:15pm to 8:15pm. (Term time only). We will be opening more workshops and putting on one off events - if you're interested in keeping in touch, let me know.
