Why volunteer at the Steelville Arts Council? Volunteer Application
There are many answers to that question, but there is one thing that all volunteers have in common: the firm belief that the Steelville Arts Council enhances the quality of life for all of those who live, work, and vacation in the Steelville region.
Volunteers are special people. They care. They have a sense of commitment to something greater than their own personal needs. They have a direct impact on achieving the mission and goals of the Steelville Arts Council. We recognize that our volunteers provide the council with a resource of talent that is unavailable in any other way. The Steelville Arts Council values this contribution and hopes to offer each volunteer a satisfying, productive, and rewarding experience.
Take action to bring more significance to your daily life. Become a part of a vital volunteer community. We invite you to get involved now!
We look forward to receiving your application to do volunteer work at one of the sites of the Steelville Arts Council. Our policy is to place volunteers in their area of interest, if there is a job opening and if the volunteer possesses the minimum qualifications. In the event that there are no openings in any of your areas of interest, we will hold your application in the active file for one year.
All qualified applicants for volunteer placement will receive consideration without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status.
