Our volunteer corps is an essential component in expanding and enhancing our services and programs to our community. At the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center we believe that volunteering should be enriching, rewarding, and a productive use of a volunteer’s time. Volunteers will meet new people, explore new interests and support our arts community. The FAC offers numerous opportunities to assist in areas including hospitality, special events and more. We welcome all individuals with various backgrounds interested in volunteering. Volunteer applications are continually accepted, but assignments are based on our current needs.

Docent History

Celebrating over half a century of community education!

We got our start at the Fine Arts Center in 1951 when former FAC Director, Mitchell Wilder, recruited a small group of young women to guide museum patrons through an exhibition of northwest American Indian art. Since then, the group has evolved into a museum education organization whose docent members provide engaging, informative, interactive tours for visitors to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College.

Outreach for the FAC Theatre Company

Outreach volunteers act as “ambassadors” for the Theatre Company. Before a production opens, volunteers are needed to handle outreach efforts. You will go to predetermined locations to distribute flyers and get potential audiences excited about the upcoming production. We provide a list of places close to your workplace, home or school. It is an excellent opportunity to get to know the productions and your community. Time commitment: 3-5 hours per week, except operators, which are 15-20 hours per week during production runs.
