The McGlothlin Center for the Arts at Emory & Henry College is seeking alumni and community volunteers to help regularly with the operations of the facility.
Volunteers would serve as gallery attendants during normal business hours of 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and as ushers for live theatre and music performances in the evening and on weekends.
We see this as a great opportunity to engage the community more in what we are doing at the center while helping us fill a need that is often difficult to accomplish with students only due to the demands of their class schedules.Lisa CampbellExecutive Director of the Center
Gallery attendants answer questions about exhibitions, provide information about gallery rules and guidelines, guide patrons, and occasionally assist visiting school groups. Ushers arrive one hour before a performance, assist patrons in finding seats, distribute programs, answer questions and assist with clean-up after a performance.
“All of our volunteers will be appropriately trained and placed in positions that suit their comfort level,” Campbell said.
