LMCC Volunteer Program

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council strives to create a welcoming environment for all our guests at our public engagement initiatives and our stakeholder recognition events including: Open Studios, the River To River Festival, Arts East River Waterfront and The Downtown Dinner. LMCC’s front of house team is seeking energetic and highly motivated volunteers to greet and direct guests, and answer general questions. Applications for volunteers are accepted on a rolling basis.

What You’ll Do: LMCC Volunteers are asked to fulfill a number of roles including:

  • Ambassador: volunteers will have the opportunity to participate directly in our outreach efforts as street team members, greeting audiences at events, assisting with check in, and handing out programs.
  • Interceptor: volunteers work with LMCC staff to collect information from attendees onsite through surveys and sign-ups. The information collected will tell us more about our audiences and will impact programmatic and audience outreach strategies and decision-making.
  • Behind-the-scenes: volunteers support logistical needs such as set up, clean up, and transport, all of which is at the core of our ability to provide the best possible audience experience.
