All, primarily youth
Spark Central is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that ignites creativity, innovation, and imagination necessary for people to forge the best path to their future.
We break down barriers to creativity like cost, confidence, and access by offering transformative programs, access to innovative technology, and welcoming creative community for people of all economic backgrounds.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to forge the future they imagine. We rely on a community of volunteers to keep our creative station available to the public, to work with youth and adults in our programs, and more!
Volunteering at Spark Central
All prospective volunteers are asked to attend a volunteer orientation before choosing their role at Spark Central. At the orientation, you’ll be asked to fill out some paperwork, chat with our staff about the volunteer positions available and receive a tour of our space.
Orientations are scheduled from 5:30pm-7:00pm on the second Thursday of every month.
Volunteering in Spark Central's Station
Spark Central relies on volunteers to operate our creative station, which is open to the public from 12pm-7pm on Tuesdays-Saturdays.
Station volunteers: help introduce youth and adults to Spark Central; assist our youth and adult patrons in identifying and learning to use the technical, art and library resources available; and help our staff mentor youth after school and during breaks. Station volunteers are asked to commit to two hours each week to offer consistency to our patrons.
Volunteering at Spark Central's Programs
Spark Central program volunteers help facilitate or lead community events and youth programming. Program volunteers assist with structured programming around arts, writing, technology, and music! As our program topics are wide-ranging, we need volunteers with wide-ranging skills and interests as well.
The time commitment as a programs volunteer can vary depending on the availability and commitment from the volunteer.
