Become a Volunteer

Atlantic Center for the Arts has a very active and involved league of volunteers consists of over 150 members that come from a variety of diverse backgrounds which contribute to a wide range of organizational and programming needs.  Our volunteers are the backbone of the organization providing ‘hands on’ assistance, financial support, and community awareness which is vital to our Mission.  Members now provide over 10,000 hours annually which has increased substantially since its official founding in 1991.

The purpose of the ACA Volunteer League is to serve as the volunteer corps of Atlantic Canter for the Arts, further the growth of arts in the New Smyrna Beach area, and foster community interest, appreciation and support of Atlantic Center for the Arts.

The ACA Volunteer League also actively support two major fundraising events, IMAGES: A Festival of the Arts and Horsin’ Around, provide assistance with Community Outreach projects, and run their own creative fundraisers throughout the year.

“Love the organization and am very happy that I finally became part of it.  ACA does many great things to help the art community. I am here for the long run!”
