Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
Interested in getting more involved with AAC? It takes many hands to schedule special programs, run classes for adults and children, coordinate eight galleries, and manage a busy administrative office, so we often look for help from volunteers and interns. In addition to working around creative, fun people, there are some nice perks to donating your time to AAC: for example, every volunteer qualifies for a free art class after 100 hours.
To volunteer, please send an email to email@example.com telling us what your interests are and what sort of availability you have. If you have a particular area of interest, like exhibition installation, research, working with children, seniors or bilingual visitors, be sure to let us know that, too.
