Benefits of Volunteering

A valuable cultural experience. Learn about the live music, comedy, theatre, dance, and family events SOPAC offers. The volunteer program provides an unparalleled opportunity to participate in many aspects of a non-profit arts organization.

Enjoy flexible hours. During the presenting season, there are a wide variety of evening and weekend events at which you can volunteer. In the administrative office, there are occasional volunteer opportunities. Administrative office hours are 9AM–6PM, Monday through Friday. 

Receive volunteer vouchers. The volunteer hours you accrue will earn you  vouchers that are good for 2 tickets to a SOPAC-presented event of your choosing. Vouchers should be redeemed in advance of a performance to confirm ticket availability.
