Emerge Summer Volunteer Program (limited)

Emerge Gallery & Art Center, a non-profit 501-(c)3 organization, seeks ambitious and dedicated youth ages 15 and older to assist with our summer camps for children. Volunteers will help Emerge Staff with a variety of tasks, such as set-up and clean-up during children’s summer camps as well as serving as assistants to Emerge Instructors. Participants will receive an official letter documenting hours and service with our organization for use if their school or civic organizations require volunteer hours. To participate students must fill out an application and meet with Paula Rountree, Programs Director, prior to their week of service. This program is free. Please note: As a benefit of membership, first priority in scheduling is given to youth and families that are members of Emerge.
