Want to volunteer?

Volunteers are a huge part of our community. Our volunteers help us reach more children and teens with arts education through their support of program operations, special projects, development and fundraising, general administration, and our signature events.

Thank you for your interest in joining the Arts Umbrella volunteer family! To become part of the Arts Umbrella volunteer team, prospective volunteers go through an application process to ensure the ongoing safety and security of our students.

I feel that I have received far more than I have ever given to Arts Umbrella.

—Helaine Sheppard, parent volunteer
