If you have a passion for the arts, the University of Minnesota, or Northrop, we’d love to have you join our volunteer program! Volunteer opportunities range from ushering and taking tickets to distributing programs, greeting patrons, and helping guests navigate our building. Volunteers often receive fun perks and special discounts. Occassionally we may have other one time special projects.
