Please note - For event-based volunteerism, the HAC representative organizing a specific program that you've shown interest in will reach out to you via email, to check on your volunteer availability, in preparation for that program/event date.


At this time, we are unable to monitor and onboard all volunteer submissions unless programs are actively seeking volunteer aid, but we will be in touch when need arises for any programs/events you've selected. Please keep a continual eye out for event-based volunteer requests, as need and activity will vary throughout the year.

Special Instructions for Gallery & Gift Shop Volunteers: 

Do you love spending time surrounded by beautiful, locally made artwork?


You can be considered for volunteer opportunities at the Hillsborough Arts Council's Gallery & Gift Shop by 


In addition to greeting customers, volunteers help merchandise and sell a variety of artwork from local artists. Volunteers serve as ambassadors for our creative community by answering questions about the Hillsborough Arts Council and other local programs and places of interest. We are looking for trainable, team-oriented volunteers who are comfortable providing customer service, processing sales with a user-friendly point of sale system, interacting with artists, accessing various technologies, and being an advocate for the arts. There are also opportunities to volunteer with special projects behind-the-scenes throughout the year. Don't worry if you are new to the area or new to the arts - all we ask is that you have an open-mind and a friendly attitude. We provide all the resources you need to feel comfortable in this important role. 


The Gallery & Gift Shop is currently open Tuesdays-Sundays, 12-4pm. During Hillsborough Last Fridays Art Walk (the last Friday of each month) we stay open until 9 pm. Volunteers should be available for at least one shift per month (exceptions allowed from time to time). Volunteers have the option of predictable/recurring or flexible shifts. Currently, our top area of need is weekend support. We hope to expand to offering more week-night hours as our team grows.
