One of the great things about the Okinawan Festival is that it is organized and staffed almost entirely by volunteers. Annually, more than 2,000 volunteers donate their unique skills and services to make the Festival possible.
There are a wide variety of opportunities for individuals willing to volunteer their time for a worthwhile cause.
To volunteer, contact Hawaii United Okinawa Association at 676-5400 or e-mail: email@example.com
Currently, volunteers are needed for the following:
