KC Friends Volunteer Application
Friends of the Kennedy Center
Volunteers Working in the Wings
Since the inception of the Friends of the Kennedy Center volunteer program in 1965, and now into the 21st century, volunteers continue to provide invaluable service to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts—eleven hours a day, seven days a week, throughout the year.
Two orientations are held annually, in the Spring and the Fall. If an opening arises in between the two orientations, we will contact you if the opening reflects an area where you expressed interest. Otherwise all qualified candidates will be notified approximately six weeks in advance of one of these sessions for an interview.
If you love the arts and you want to give back on a regular basis, then joining the Friends is just the ticket for you. Following the call to service at the Kennedy Center reaps many personal rewards, and volunteering for a cause you're passionate about allows you to share the experience with like-minded people.
