If you have a passion for the arts, get excited about working with the public, and enjoy being part of community events, volunteering at the Lone Tree Arts Center (LTAC) is the place for you.
LTAC opened in 2011 as a state-of-the art, environmentally green venue hosting national and regional tours, children’s education programs, as well as private and community events. The primary responsibility of LTAC volunteers, known as “ushers,” is to ensure patron safety and provide customer service and satisfaction.
LTAC provides training for volunteers three times a year, and with 275 different volunteer events last year alone, volunteers are always in demand. To become a volunteer, candidates must complete an application, undergo a background check, and participate in a 90-minute training session. Volunteers must contribute at least 12 times a year and can sign up for all events through an online calendar. (Some volunteers participate up to 50 times a year because they find it enjoyable.) In exchange for volunteering, ushers receive complimentary tickets to a theatrical program and high school students can even earn community service credit.
Volunteering at LTAC is for people who love the arts, including children’s events, music and the theatre. With so many events to choose from and the ability to select the times to work, LTAC makes it easy to participate.
The next volunteer training session is in August and to learn more, contact Rich Harris by e-mail at email@example.com.
