Give a Little, Get a Lot



Leave a Lasting Impact
The purpose of volunteers at Chapman Cultural Center is to assist in the smooth and safe operation of the theatre and the facility. Chapman Cultural Center is a place to discover, experience, and celebrate the performing and visual arts, science, and history.

Being a volunteer is all about great customer service. We believe that our volunteers are the heart of the cultural experience. The way our volunteers 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.
