Want to help? Sweetwater wouldn't be able to provide the high-quality arts education and cultural programming without the help of our volunteers! There are a wide variety of opportunities available to suit all schedules and skill sets! Volunteers earn $6 per hour toward classes at Sweetwater*.
* Volunteers may apply earned hours to up to 50% of the total cost of any class (i.e., if a class costs $200 and the volunteer has accrued $300 earned hours, the volunteer may only apply $100 to the class. The remaining accrued hours may be carried over to apply to other classes.)
