Giving Tuesday | Program Information | Volunteer | Become a Donor
Volunteers are an essential part of our work. Our volunteers provide support, resources and skills to help our organization function and grow. Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer for Arts Alive! We have opportunities in several areas for adults and high school students throughout the year.
Our busiest times are through the month of June when all Spring Awards Recitals are scheduled. Over 600 of our students are present at these events to perform and receive their end-of-year certificates. These are proud moments for the children and parents. Your role is essential to the success of each recital and we appreciate any time you offer to support our mission.
Event Planning and Fundraising
Arts Alive hosts concerts and events throughout the year, including summer months. Events are both in-school, after-school and in the community. Event planners can assist at the planning/coordinating level or at the event operations level such as tech, sound, and concessions.
Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors works closely with the administration to oversee areas of the organization including operations, personnel, finances and development. The Board meets 8 times throughout the year and plays an integral part in strategic planning.
