Great Volunteer Opportunity

Looking for a great volunteer experience to use your incredible creative powers? Volunteer as an Art Buddy. Inspire a child to take pride in what they can do and who they can become by working with a creative person like you.

More about Art Buddies—from Stacey Stratton, president and founder of Hello New Job platinum sponsor True Talent Group: “Art Buddies is an incredible nonprofit organization that helps connect the amazing creative talent in the Twin Cities with children who are bursting with imagination but who may not have the immediate resources for creative pursuits.” Learn more about Stratton’s involvement in Art Buddies.

You’ll work one on one with your buddy alongside volunteers from all sorts of creative fields. You’ll help your buddy create an imaginative costume that reflects their unique strengths and journal their ideas and experience. Then pose together for professional photos, and present your creation in a special parade and show.

Afterward, celebrate with your fellow volunteers!
