Book Us for Your Events
Our Rondalla Ensemble, Carolers, Dance Performance Group, and Educators provide great performances and resources to share with your community! The public performances done by our extracurricular groups and volunteer teachers are crucial in funding our school activities. Additional benefits from inviting our groups to your events include: exposing our students to new communities and organizations; celebrating, sharing, and preserving Filipino culture; and strengthening our greater community.
You can find information on how to book our groups here.
Volunteer with Us
Below are some examples of how you can volunteer within our community:
- Get involved with our Lowell Folk Festival Food Booth – You can support our largest annual fundraiser by helping us before, during, and after the festival! At our preparation workshops, you can help clean equipment, chop vegetables, and marinate meat. During the festival, you can help set up and break down our tents, roll lumpia and turon, prepare vegetables, and wash dishes. Finally, we need the most help after the festival, returning equipment to our storage facilities.
- Get involved in the classroom as a teaching assistant – You can assist our volunteer teachers in curriculum planning and teaching in the classroom!
- Get involved in our public performances – All of our performance groups are in constant need of assistance with: instrument, costume, and prop repair and maintenance; stage set and lighting design; backstage logistics; transportation of performers and equipment; and food provision. Therefore, committed volunteers are essential to our performance groups!
If you are interested in volunteering with our community in any of these capacities, please feel free to contact us! We are also open to other forms of volunteering and would love to hear your ideas!

We also love sharing opportunities to our IP families, supporters, and alumni to enjoy events hosted by other organizations. From showings of Filipino-American films and plays (such as Here Lies Love, Middleton Heights, and Jo Koy’s Easter Sunday) to tailgating at New England Revolution games to attending Asian-American festivals, the IP community enjoys attending events together!
If you and your organization hosts an event you would like to invite our community to attend and support, please feel free to share the event information with us! We will gladly share events with our community!
