Volunteer

PAC volunteers Live & Love the Arts! This special group is welcoming, energetic, and bring our facility to life. We couldn’t do it without them!

Volunteering at the PAC is an opportunity to be an integral part of the Arts in Alaska! Besides serving an important role while giving back, you’ll be interacting with Alaskans from all parts of the community and helping elevate their experience. Join the volunteer team today!

Ushering in the Arts

Ushering in the Arts is the volunteer program of Alaska Center for the Performing Arts that serves all events at the PAC. Our team of 380-plus volunteer ushers are a go-to resource for our guests who attend performances.

Ushers rotate through several roles, including providing directions, scanning tickets, connecting guests to accessible services, and making sure each guest is safe and comfortable. In an emergency, such as an evacuation, our volunteers are on hand to coordinate a swift and safe response.

We welcome everyone 18 and older to apply! To learn more, read the job description and complete our application.

Ask an Usher

Our ushers are super fans of the arts, experts at providing information and direction, and are versatile troubleshooters. Questions about your seats? Concerns regarding your comfort? Need to know where the nearest changing table is located? Volunteer ushers are here to assist! They’re easy to spot in their black and white garb. Feel free to approach ushers with any question or need. They can coordinate with ACPA staff members to assist you.
