Volunteering at TOM*

TOM* – Toronto Men’s Fashion Week salutes all its volunteers and is proud of its stellar Volunteer Experiences (V/X) program.

From backstage to front stage, from planning to execution, our TOM* volunteers have a hand in every step of TOM*s success. You can be a part of the journey too and experience what it takes to run Canada’s only men-focused fashion week. By volunteering, you will be getting hands-on experience in your field of interest, have an opportunity to network with people from different walks of life, be mentored by industry professionals and take part in the most important and influential platform for menswear in Canada.

The volunteers at TOM* are a close-knit  team that collaborate together to achieve, acknowledge and celebrate success and we are always looking for more talented individuals to join us.
