Volunteer With Centrum

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Centrum volunteer! This form adds you to our volunteer database. View volunteer opportunities and in-demand skills below.

Centrum has a large and active volunteer program, and email is the best way to keep up to date with the most current volunteer news and opportunities. We are careful with your email address – it will not appear in group mailings, or be shared with any other organization. If you don’t have email, we can contact you via the postal service or by phone. To reach us by phone, please call Claire at (360) 385-3102 x112.

    Volunteer Opportunities at Centrum Events

    The Centrum volunteer team is made up of wonderful people who provide great customer service, and make each event safe and fun for everyone. If you’d like to join us, we’d love to have you. Please remember, during these performances we are “working,” and don’t always get to see or hear the show. So pick your events and assignments with that in mind.
