Carnegie seeks volunteers
Placeholder Image

The Carnegie Arts Center is seeking volunteers to work in a variety of roles as a new exhibit opens and fall tours are lining up.

Since the grand opening in September 2011, volunteers have greeted more than 15,000 visitors and docents have led tours for more than 6,000 school children. Events staffed by volunteers have also included lectures, poetry, music, dance, theater, films, and family programs. As a private, non-profit organization, the Carnegie Arts Center Foundation relies on volunteers for essential help in every aspect of operating the Center.

An informational meeting for those interested in volunteering at the Carnegie will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Arts Center, 250 N. Broadway.

Opportunities for volunteers include working in customer service, special events, clerical, and exhibitions. Docents to give tours and lead programs are also needed. All volunteers will receive training specific to their duties. Volunteers should be at least 15 years of age and willing to commit to at least four hours per month.

Volunteer sign up forms will be available at the meeting or can be downloaded from the website at For more information call 632-5761.
