Calling all performing arts enthusiasts... We need you!

Join the active volunteer corps of Portland’5 Centers for the Arts. Our volunteers are members of the Portland metro community and share the desire to increase access to the performing arts. The Portland'5 Volunteer Program is filled with people who share their life and business experiences, fluency in other languages and their love of live performances. All training is provided including customer service procedures, ushering duties, ticket reading and safety in all venues.

If you share a passion for the arts, love working in a team, and are ready to enter a whole new world of experiences and new friends, please reach out to us! Orientations and trainings happen every 2 months.
