Volunteer Opportunities

Erie Arts & Culture relies on the help of volunteers from the community to provide office assistance and occasional help at grant hearings and other events. Students, professionals, retirees and anyone who would like to support the arts, learn about local arts programs and get involved is welcome!

Office tasks vary and can be based upon a volunteer’s skills and interests. In most cases, volunteers are needed between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

For information or to inquire about current volunteer needs, please email info@erieartsandculture.org. Please try to include information about your skills, areas of interest, volunteering needs (i.e. if required as service hours for a school project) and availability.
