Give a Little, Get a Lot


Chapman Cultural Center is a place to discover, experience, and celebrate the performing and visual arts, science, and history. Volunteers at Chapman Cultural Center assist in the smooth and safe operation of our facility and help ensure it's a welcoming environment for everyone.

Being a volunteer is all about great customer service. We believe that our volunteers are the heart of the cultural experience. We're looking for community members who are dependable, friendly, and eager to share their time with others.
