Volunteer Opportunities in Harrisonburg and Shenandoah Valley

Cubby the bearEvent Support

Engage with attendees at various VPM and partner events in the community focused on art/culture, science, education, and news/history. This could include interacting with guests, educational children’s activities, or event set-up/ flow. Duties vary with each event. Opportunities exist for both weeknights and weekends.

Events are a great way to introduce the many programs and resources VPM offers. By interacting with guests and sharing information, you help connect us with new and current audiences.
