Volunteer Positions

The Arvada Center is the largest multi-disciplinary cultural center in the United States. Because of the many offerings available at the Arvada Center , the Volunteer Program provides many opportunities for volunteers to be involved in their areas of interest and utilizing their skills and abilities. Since the Arvada Center has opportunities available days and evenings, weekdays and weekends, most volunteers can find a schedule that meets their needs. The primary volunteer programs are briefly defined below so that you can help decide on the area that best meets your desire for volunteering, and best utilizes your qualifications.

ALL volunteers are required to pass a background investigation prior to being assigned to a position within the Arvada Center.
