Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer at the Pearson Lakes Art Center. With your time you are making an important contribution to the arts and we are excited to share your skill set!

The PLAC has three main departments that utilize volunteers. Throughout the year, opportunities in Visual Arts, Education, Performing Arts, the Vault Gift Shop, and the Docent Program become available.

To become a PLAC volunteer please contact the Visual Arts Department at visual@lakesart.org. Once you have shown interest, we will be in touch to schedule an orientation.

We look forward to getting to know you!

Current Opportunities

Welcome Desk: Greet Visitors and hand out information during our open hours, or before/after PLAC events

Tour Guides: Upon completing a scheduled PLAC docent training, you are able to become an art center ambassador. We give, on average, roughly two tours a week. Our hope is to eventually have the capacity and interest to grow this to one official tour a day!

Performing Arts Usher: Check in at the Box Office. Duties include: taking tickets, showing patrons to their seats, beverage patrol, making people smile! When you volunteer as an usher, you are able to attend the performance!

Event Support: Lead an art activity, greet the public, bartend, set the spread for an art opening, you name it we need it! We need your personality and your love for people to help our events run smooth!

PLAC Street Team: We are looking for passionate people to hit the streets with the good word! We want you to bring your craziest marketing ideas to the table to help us attract new folks to our events! Flash-mobs encouraged, Flyer distribution a MUST!
