Volunteer with Perkins

Perkins Center was founded by an all-volunteer committee of Moorestown residents 30 years ago. Volunteers have continued to play an important role in the inner workings of Perkins Center throughout its history. Volunteering can also provide individuals with the opportunity to become more involved in their community, to learn new skills, and make new friends.

Please join with us and become a partner with Perkins Center as we continue our mission to provide excellence in the arts to the residents of southern New Jersey. Contact Perkins Center for the Arts via e-mail at create@perkinscenter.org and a Perkins Center representative will be in touch with you to discuss volunteer opportunities.
