Volunteer

Leave a Lasting Impact
The purpose of Volunteers/Ambassadors at Chapman Cultural Center is to assist in the smooth and safe operation of the theatre and the facility (our partner agencies). As a part of our family of volunteers, you will be an important part of the legacy we are leaving for the community. Chapman Cultural Center is a place to discover, experience, and celebrate the performing and visual arts, science, and history. You have the opportunity to learn while having fun. Chapman has set the standard for culture and education in Spartanburg County, and we believe that our Volunteer/Ambassador Program will be a ground-breaking model for years to come.

Our goal is to develop the finest and most professional volunteer program in South Carolina.

Being a Volunteer/Ambassador is all about great customer service. We believe that our Volunteers/Ambassadors are the heart of the cultural experience. The way our Volunteers/Ambassadors present themselves reflects on the members of Chapman Cultural Center and leaves a lasting impression with our visitors. We are looking for people who are dependable, friendly, of good character, and are eager to share their expertise with our valued visitors.
