Volunteer Opportunities

As a small nonprofit organization, ACA relies on the help of our supporters and volunteers to be able to offer creative, dynamic and inspiring art programs and events all year-round. We hope you'll consider joining our team of volunteers -- whether you are interested in helping out with one-time events, or offering weekly administrative support, your assistance is vital to our mission and ongoing operations! Please use our Volunteer Application to let us know a little bit about you and which volunteer opportunities you are interested in. 

Note: for high school students, volunteer opportunities can be used as community service hours.

Please note: our current ongoing and event-specific volunteer opportunities are indicated below. If you haven't already, please fill out the Volunteer Application to receive more information about these opportunities, including links to sign up for specific volunteer shifts. 

  • Ongoing -- Gallery Sitter/Greeter: Gallery Sitters/Greeters help to greet and direct visitors to the ACA (including the Shaira Ali Gallery). Volunteers may also be asked to help with some light administrative tasks during down time and should also feel free to bring a book or laptop.

Strengthening Equity: 

Arlington Center for the Arts makes an intentional effort to center access, equity, and inclusivity as we expand our artistic, administrative, leadership, and instructional teams. We recognize this is an effort we needed to put into practice long ago. We are actively educating ourselves and strategizing to uphold more equitable practices from here on out. Historical and institutional barriers have a significant impact on who has had access to what opportunities. At the ACA, we believe these marginalized communities must be centered in our work. With this in mind, ACA strongly encourages applicants from diverse backgrounds including people of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals, intergenerational voices, people of varying abilities and other marginalized communities to apply to any opportunities that my interest them.
