The Student Volunteer Corps is a Walton Arts Center Learning program and a volunteer opportunity for high school students, ages 13-18, who have a strong interest in arts and arts presenting. Participants are selected through a competitive application process. 

In this semester long program, participants get a behind the scene look at Walton Arts Center and increase their awareness of the arts and arts presenting business through real-life experience.   Camp War Eagle is a Walton Arts Center Student Volunteer Corps project partner.

Student Volunteers: 

  • Talk one-on-one with our professional staff about their work in the arts 
  • Tour the backstage 
  • See live performance and learn to be a great audience member
  • Explore different arts-business areas like Box Office, Communications, and Production
  • Assist at a school show to help serve more than 1,000 children 

“I had such an incredible time shadowing! I never knew that working at an arts center would be something I am interested in, and now I can't imagine myself working in any other element of theatre. Thank you so much for all of your help! This has been an experience I will never forget.”
