Yavapai College Performing Arts Center Volunteer Front of House Staff: Ushers, Greeters and Ticket Takers
From its inception in 1992, volunteers have provided invaluable service to the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center (YCPAC). YCPAC Volunteers are a diverse, educated, and arts-loving group with a wonderful spirit of volunteerism that benefits both our campus and community. Please help us make Yavapai County a better place to live, work and go to school as we present over 150 cultural events this coming year: from the Prescott Pops, to independent films, to satellite broadcasts of the National Theater of London, to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Finals, to live Broadway shows and musical artists from around the world!
Active volunteer staff may have the opportunity to see a free performance when volunteering. Some assignments could possibly limit some of the event viewing time, but most of the time volunteer front of house staff can count on seeing the full performance.
Being an active YCPAC volunteer comes with its share of perks:
Qualify for a staff discount earning 50% off for up to a pair of tickets to some shows
10% discount at the YCPAC Snack Bars
