Hundreds of people each year volunteer their time to make Interlochen one of the nation’s most remarkable educational institutions. Like you, they want to make a difference at Interlochen Center for the Arts, whether they live in the area, are just in for a visit, or want to help from afar.

Volunteer On Campus

Our on-campus volunteers:

  • Lead full-campus tours
  • Provide information to first-time visitors
  • Sew costumes for student performances
  • Usher at concerts
  • Plant flowers on Interlochen’s campus
… and much more! In fact, this past fiscal year more than 550 volunteers donated nearly 13,000 hours here at Interlochen.

If you’ve ever wanted to give or give back to Interlochen, we’d love to welcome you as a volunteer. You will enrich the lives of our students and join a community of hundreds of people devoted to making a difference at Interlochen.
