Volunteer with the Art Center

At GCCA, there are many opportunities to engage with artists, art students, and art appreciators through volunteering! You can use your unique talents and skills to positively impact lives and help further our mission. Your presence creates a rich experience for gallery visitors, art students, kids in summer camps, and all those who come to GCCA for community experiences in the visual arts.

Volunteers must be 13 or older unless they are accompanied by a parent who is also volunteering. All volunteers must pass a background check conducted by GCCA through a third party company.
