Become a Volunteer

The number one reason the Cultural Centre is able to reach out to the community is because of the tremendous support we receive from the many men and women who volunteer. We have all been gifted in different ways and we seek to utilize those giftings so that volunteering at the Cultural Centre is a joyful experience, not just another task to be performed. We couldn’t be more grateful for those who have blessed us with the the gift of their time and talents.

Many volunteer opportunities are available. If you’re interested in volunteering please fill out the form below and we will be in touch. We appreciate you!
