One SPARK, Big Impact

South Bend Venues Parks & Arts is always looking for new and interested parties to volunteer and support programs, venues, events and facilities. There are three key areas listed below from which you can choose:

Special Events Volunteer
If you are interested in fun, energetic activities where you can interact with all spectrums of the community, this is the team you want to be on! You could assist with crafts, taking pictures, handing out information, handing out giveaways, taking tickets, or answering questions.

Morris Usher Volunteer
If your interest lies in being a helping hand inside the historic Morris Performing Arts Center while broadening your scope of theatrical knowledge, you’ll want to take advantage of this opportunity. You could help stuff programs, seat people, and answer questions about the venue, area restaurants, and performances.

  • Must be 18 years of age
  • There is training that every usher needs to attend
  • An usher needs to commit to at least twelve events per year

Park Maintenance Volunteer
If you are interested in helping maintain and beautify the 1,300+ acres of parks in the City of South Bend, this is the volunteer experience for you. From trails at Rum Village, windows along the St. Joseph river, playgrounds, and new landscaping, there are opportunities to be outside while serving the community. These volunteers will be physically active while participating.
