The Sharon Art Stu­dio has a wide vari­ety of vol­un­teer oppor­tu­ni­ties.

Whether you want to vol­un­teer once a year or once a week, whether you are inter­ested in pro­vid­ing     sup­port in events, in the class­room, or in office    admin­is­tra­tion, we have an oppor­tu­nity for you!



Oppor­tu­ni­ties include (but are not limited to):

  • Events (street fairs, stu­dio events, stu­dent sales, fundraisers)
  • Admin­is­tra­tive (data entry, mail­ings, IT con­sult­ing, web devel­op­ment, data­base sup­port, writ­ing and edit­ing)
  • Fundrais­ing (grant writ­ing, events, cam­paigns)
  • Youth and Teen craft instruc­tors
  • Intern­ships (for col­lege and post-college stu­dents seek­ing expe­ri­ence in arts edu­ca­tion and/or admin­is­tra­tion)
  • Social Media/Branding (PR/marketing, social media post management)
  • Com­mit­tee work (Board of Direc­tors)
  • Other (add your own ideas!)

If you are inter­ested in any of these vol­un­teer oppor­tu­ni­ties, or would like to sug­gest another way you can help out with your time and tal­ent, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call (415) 753-7006.

Please note, before begin­ning your vol­un­teer work you may be required to com­plete a free vol­un­teer appli­ca­tion with the San Fran­cisco Recre­ation and Parks Depart­ment (SFRPD). This includes a back­ground check and fin­ger­print­ing, and is manda­tory for all vol­un­teers in order for you to be cov­ered by city lia­bil­ity insurance.

Step 1: Fill out a Volunteer Application available online at sfrecpark.org or pick one up at our office.
Step 2: Schedule a finger printing appointment online or by calling the volunteer office at 415-831-6330
Step 3: Practice Patience. After completing your fingerprint appointment, wait to receive clearance prior to beginning your volunteer assignment. You cannot volunteer at any facility/rec program unless you have been cleared by the Department of Justice.
Step 4: Once you have been cleared, contact your supervisor to find out what your schedule and responsibilities will be.
Step 5: Have fun and remember to sign-in and out at your site/program every day you show up for work; and ensure that your supervisor is turning in your volunteer hours to the volunteer office on a regular basis.
