Volunteer!

Christmas volunteers

Be Inspired! The Cultural Arts Center offers many fun and rewarding ways to get involved and support the arts! Smiling faces are needed at all of our Center Season performances to welcome our guests, scan tickets, pass out programs and show guests to their seats. Courteous and flexible volunteers are needed to cover the front desk from time to time.  During our gallery opening receptions and our special events we depend on volunteers to help with everything from set up to serving food to baking cookies or even to be Mrs. Claus and her elves!

Our volunteers have tremendously impacted our ability to provide affordable arts education and entertainment to the surrounding community since The Center opened in 1999. Over the past year, our volunteers were able to donate a combined 1,200 volunteer hours to help support the arts in the community! This year we have even more exciting programs planned and we would appreciate your involvement and support.

Because our volunteers are so important to us, we have created a reward program to show our appreciation for your time and effort.  Details about the rewards that you can earn  are described below.
