Michigan Legacy Art Park has a new volunteer committee. This committee is charged with growing a group of volunteers dedicated to the Art Park. This committee is currently busy scheduling enrichment opportunities and social gatherings for our volunteers.
Recently, our volunteer opportunities were posted on the Volunteer Center's website. If you haven't checked out this new tool for volunteers in northern Michigan, you should click here to view our listing.
You will notice that we need a volunteer coordinator – this is a great new volunteer job that entails getting to know lots of people and ultimately increasing the capacity of Michigan Legacy Art Park. Please consider yourself for this position or share this volunteer job with others you think may be interested.
