We love our volunteers (and we always need more of them to love)! Our community thrives and depends on the unique skills and capabilities of everyone involved with Arts of Life. Our volunteers assist artists with projects, teach new art skills, design databases, plan special events, assist in grant applications, and much more. Apply to be one of our many helping hands or check out our Board of Director opportunities– we’d love to find a place for you!
