The Kentucky Center is proud to have 500 active and friendly volunteers who contributed nearly 60,000 hours of service last year. Volunteers are an integral part of The Kentucky Center’s team. For the past thirty-five years, volunteers have contributed their time and skills to create a welcoming and hospitable environment for patrons. Whether students visiting the Center for the first time on a class field trip, out-of-town visitors attending regional or national conferences, or long-time supporters of the arts, Kentucky Center volunteers set the stage for each patron’s arts experience. They are the face of The Kentucky Center to patrons, the first to greet them when they arrive for an event and the last face they see as they leave. Volunteers fill a variety of roles here at The Kentucky Center. These include ticket takers, ushers, greeters, tour guides, bus assistants, as well as manning our information desk and coat check, and providing important support for our administrative functions and Access Services Program. The high quality of service delivered by volunteers is a critical piece in The Kentucky Center’s mission to provide unparalleled programming and cultural events to the region.
The Kentucky Center Volunteer Program recognizes the variety of time commitments that some very dedicated individuals can make. Therefore, we have developed five distinct programs to meet those various needs. Each of these different programs are outlined below!
