TOGETHER WE’RE BETTER
Volunteering at Cotuit Center for the Arts is fun! And it’s essential. We simply can’t do what we do without our volunteers. You’ll be joining a terrific group of friendly, dedicated, and fascinating people who enable our success with productions, classes, exhibits, performances, facilities, and special events.
WHY SHOULD I VOLUNTEER?
When you give of yourself, the payback is enormous. When you volunteer your talents and experience, you'll gain self-esteem and personal satisfaction from being part of something dynamic and important. You’ll meet like-minded new friends, participate in a spectrum of “cultural” activities, and come away knowing YOU have made a difference in the lives of others. You may even learn some new skills. Plus: you’ll have fun!

We are now a Points of Light Service Enterprise!
Cotuit Center for the Arts is pleased to announce that we have been certified by Points of Light as a Service Enterprise! A Service Enterprise is an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills throughout their organization to successfully deliver on its social mission.
Research conducted by the TCC Group, a national program and evaluation firm, found that organizations operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations on all aspects of organizational effectiveness, and are more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their work.
Cotuit Center for the Arts completed an extensive assessment, over 20 hours of training and consulting and extensive internal planning and change to better integrate volunteers in our day to day operations. By achieving this level of excellence and certification, Cotuit Center for the Arts is now better equipped to leverage the time and talent of volunteers and better meet our mission.
