Volunteer

Where would we be without our volunteers?

Jefferson Center’s volunteer program has grown to more than 300 active participants who donated 4,562 hours of essential services valued at more than $101,000. This vital service enables us to keep tickets and programs financially accessible and our staff size small. Center volunteers range in ages from 11 through 75+. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our growing organization, filling a need that would otherwise be impossible to meet.
