Volunteer

From ushering at a performance to working with students through our education and family programs, our 300-plus volunteers provide vital service to the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts and help bring the joy, enrichment, and excitement of the arts to our community. The saying “many hands make light work” rings true every day at LBC. Our volunteers include ushers who seat patrons and attend to their needs at shows and events, docents who give tours of art collection, aids who help families to make arts and crafts together prior to shows, administrative volunteers who support Center operations and programs, and last but certainly not least, the Center’s volunteer board of directors who provide essential oversight and leadership.

We salute our 300-plus volunteers who provide tens-of-thousands of dollars in donated services annually.

Thank you!  We couldn’t do it without you!
