Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking for local volunteer opportunities?

Do you want to get more personally involved in the ongoing success of one or more of our area nonprofits? Here are some ways you and your family can volunteer year-round:

Arts-Kids: Help kids release their creativity and enjoy some terrific feedback by assisting artists and facilitators with after-school programs in Park City and surrounding areas or in the Arts-Kids office on Bonanza Drive. Programs run for two-and-a-half hours weekly during fall and spring semesters, so your time commitment can be small, but the benefit to the kids will be great. Please visit Arts-Kids.org or call 435-615-7878 to learn more.
