Want to make a difference with your time?

  • Promotion: distribute materials and information to people calling with inquiries about BCAT programs
  • Student Recruitment: assist in outreach opportunities through various channels
  • Data Entry: help the development department, youth or adult programming areas
  • General Desk Work: answer phones, greet students, tour the facility with visitors and other administrative tasks
  • Event Volunteer: assist in BCAT benefits, student events, graduations and art shows
  • Workforce Development Coach: work with adult students on resume preparation, interview skills, networking skills and professional development opportunities
  • After School Support: assist during arrival and transition times, serve as a second adult in the room during Youth Arts programming
  • Academic Support (Adults): provide academic support for individual or small groups of adult students working on study skills or specific areas such as Medical Terminology or Anatomy and Physiology
  • Academic Support (Youth): provides academic support for high school students.
  • Youth Field Trip Chaperone: serve as a chaperone as our youth explores area arts destinations and colleges
