Global Friends Application
Celebrating and Connecting Cultures Through Arts Volunteerism
Hailing from 56 countries, Global Friends are a special group of volunteers at the Kennedy Center who believe that supporting the arts is a message that needs to be spread globally. They play a vital role in celebrating and connecting cultures through arts volunteerism.
If you are visiting the U.S. for a temporary (e.g. expat) assignment, if you are from a country outside the United States, or if you speak at least one foreign language fluently and are passionate about the arts, this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you. Global Friends assist either as Friends of the Kennedy Center on a weekly basis, or on an as-needed basis as a Festival/Event volunteer for the Center's many international festivals, one-day volunteer opportunities as well as other international projects.
