Volunteer at The Arts Center

As a non-profit, a lot of the work we do at The Arts Center is dependent on help from our volunteers. We need help in many areas, at a variety of times during the day. Volunteer opportunities range from administrative tasks, special event preparation, class assistants and even long-term internships. Please be advised that we may not have available opportunities in all areas at all times.
