Volunteer

Like any non-profit organization, ArtSeed relies on volunteers of all sorts, on their time and ideas, and on their talents and donations. We provide all kinds of opportunities to make a difference in the lives of young people through a respected organization that serves diverse Bay Area communities. Volunteers assist in the office and the classroom, help with events, develop special projects, and serve on the Board of Directors. Fund-raising and public relations skills are particularly appreciated, but even things as simple as helping transport students and objects are needed and welcomed. We need your special skills and energy, and we hope you will join us in what we do. Please be in touch!

Participants under 18 should also have their parents/guardians sign. Scan and send by email to info@artseed.org; or mail it to P.O. Box 29277, San Francisco, CA 94129-0277.
