Pentangle Arts is always looking for volunteers! Pentangle’s mission provides a year-round schedule of events, and volunteers can enjoy the rewards of working with a lively arts organization from behind-the-scenes, while meeting new people and having a great time. We couldn’t do it without you!

Volunteer positions may be ongoing or event-specific. Positions include performance ushers, box office, poster delivery, school/education liaison, special events, general office assistance, and other “ad-hoc” roles as needed.  We can help you find the role that best fits your interests and schedule, and it all helps bring great arts events to life for the community.

Please review the following list of volunteer opportunities for the Fall 2017 Season. Let us know what interests you by contacting filling out the form at the bottom of this page or by contacting Serena Nelson at [email protected] or call (802) 457-3981.

Thank you for lending us your time, talents, and enthusiasm!
