Volunteer Opportunities

The Flynn depends on literally hundreds of people each year to volunteer in our Spirit Program, to support our benefit events, and to serve on various committees such as programming, education and development.

Spirit Program

Spirits are members of the community who volunteer to serve as ushers, ticket takers, concession staff, and in other support roles for performances at the Flynn Center. It is a once-a-year sign up and we begin accepting applications every June for the upcoming season. Call our offices or email in June or July at 802-652-4500 to have an application sent, or email Carol Goodrum at cgoodrum@flynncenter.org. We will send you an application form and an informational letter about the program. The deadline is August 15 for new volunteer applications for the upcoming season. There is a mandatory orientation meeting held late early September every year.

Benefit Events

Looking for a fun volunteer opportunity? How about joining one of our benefit event committees or volunteering at a fundraiser? Each year the Flynn benefits from the creative spirit and hard work of more than 200 volunteers who participate in the Flynn’s events helping to raise much needed revenue.

Volunteer at the Flynn Center

Home & Garden Online Auction: May

Are you knowledgeable about items that gardeners need and like? Then come help a really fun team put together the Flynn Center's Annual Home and Garden Online Auction. We're looking for a few outgoing people who are ready and willing to help us create another winning fundraising event. Contact Nancy Abbott-Hourigan at 802-652-4505 or nabbottREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@flynncenter.org, or Gina Haddock at 802-652-4533 or rhaddockREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@flynncenter.org for more information.

Garden Tour: July

Join the Garden Tour committee and help create and organize a perennial favorite: the Flynn’s Annual Garden Tour. Many volunteers are also needed on the day of the tour to serve as guides at tour stops and to sell lunches. Contact Gina Haddock at 802-652-4533 or rhaddockREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@flynncenter.org.

Education Department

Are you interested in volunteering for FlynnArts and the Education Department? We often need help with data entry and always need help distributing brochures and posters in the community and at special events. Or perhaps you have a special skill that we might put to good use? Please contact Christina Weakland at 802-652-4543 or cweaklandREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@flynncenter.org for more information.
