Volunteering at CCA

Our team includes many volunteers who support the Columbia Center for the Arts in a variety of ways. Volunteering for the arts is a wonderful way to expand your social horizons, learn new skills, share your breadth of experience, and give back to the community.

If you would like to volunteer, please check out the many position descriptions listed below. Choose from regularly scheduled opportunities or our occasional “on call” jobs. Then, simply complete and submit the online Volunteer Form and we’ll be in touch with you about opportunities.

CCA is also currently searching for new community members to join our Board of Directors. If you support bringing art to the communities of the Columbia River Gorge, enjoy interacting with others by advocating for the arts, or simply enjoy fundraising and nonprofits, we’d love to connect with you!
