Become a Volunteer

The Leighton Art Centre encourages all of our members to consider our exciting volunteer opportunities. These involve numerous fundraising events and ongoing short-term projects. Volunteering at the Leighton Art Centre can be a fun, rewarding experience. Our volunteers love our wonderful venue, the variety of events we host and the opportunity of meeting other individuals who support art.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Greeter/Safety Ambassador

As we continue to work through our plans to reopen, we are looking for volunteers who can help Leighton Art Centre visitors adhere to COVID-19 protocols and social distancing guidelines. Greeter/Safety Ambassador volunteers would be our first point of contact with visitors and therefore need to be comfortable engaging with the public, both indoors and outdoors. Candidates must be in good health and not at high risk for complications from COVID-19. All appropriate and reasonable safety measures will be implemented for the protection of our staff, volunteers, and visitors alike. More detailed information on role duties and safety measures will be provided to all volunteers prior to their arrival on-site.  

If you are interested in potentially volunteering to help us in this capacity (or if you have any questions), please respond to Lindsay by email ( as soon as possible and no later than May 29, 2020. Please include in your email a list of the days (between Wednesday & Sunday) on which you are generally available and how often you would be able to take a full day (10 am - 4pm) shift (e.g. once a week, twice a month etc...). This role may begin in early June, at the earliest. 

Many thanks from the Leighton Art Centre team!
