Summer Volunteers

Each summer, we recruit many summer camp volunteers for our Summer Fun! and ArtReach programs. This is a great opportunity to gain valuable experience working with children in a fun and energetic art camp setting.

If you're interested in volunteering over the summer in 2017, please check back in 2017 for the summer volunteer application form.
