Spark Central is a volunteer-run organization. We rely on ordinary heroes like you to make the magic happen! Build value for yourself and your community while having fun, gaining skills and growing relationships.
We background check all potential volunteers. The results will be kept confidential and a past record does not necessarily disqualify you from volunteering.
We believe people of all ages need barrier-free access to creative opportunities. That's why we offer community events that are open to everyone at no cost. As a community event volunteer, you'll arrive early to set up, fulfill a crucial role in running the event — this could be welcoming attendees, hosting an activity station or "floating" — then stay afterward to help return the space to its former glory.
We're serious about play! Youth playshops engage students in building creative confidence while cultivating imagination, solving problems and learning new skills. As a youth playshop volunteer, you'll work one-on-one with kids to guide them through the day's project, whether it be writing a poem, creating a comic or building a LEGO robot.
Weekly STATION Shift
Volunteering at Spark Central is a great way serve the community. As a station (center) volunteer, you commit to be available at the Spark Central for three hours once a week —any shift you choose. You’ll welcome people who come in, learn how to run the center, be a living resource for those seeking help with a project, or share with those who just want to chat about who you are and what you know. It's a great way to help others, connect with like-minded people, and hang out in a space where exciting connections will be happening all the time.
Can't commit to being a station volunteer? Become a substitute and help cover center shifts when others can't make it. We'll add you to our list and call if there's an open center shift; you decide if you can come in or not. Please contact us if interested.
There's a place for you at Spark Central! When you attend a volunteer orientation, we'd love to hear what you're passionate about — media projects, office work, IT support, outreach, hosting special events, or perhaps something we haven't even dreamt of.
Please sign up to volunteer using the form below. We'll send you a reminder for our next volunteer orientation — the second Thursday of each month from 5:30 - 7:00 PM.
