Become a SPARK Volunteer!

Without the continued support of individuals such as yourself, Venues Parks & Arts would not be able to successfully deliver the outstanding events and programs in our community’s beautiful venues and parks. With 53 parks, the Morris Performing Arts Center, and multiple facilities, we are always looking for community resources to help better our events, activities, and programs. ushers

Volunteers for the Morris are ambassadors and play an extremely vital role in the events that happen here! This passionate group works hard to ensure the arts are sustained in our community. Ushers are an extremely important tool to ensure patrons of all ages have an incredible experience at the Morris. Volunteers are provided with leadership opportunities, personal growth, entertainment, and more.

We are always looking for dedicated individuals who are able to commit to volunteering at various events. Each participant will complete a training course prior to ushering their first event.

What is the Spark Team?

Venues Parks & Arts is introducing a brand new volunteer recognition program as a way to say thank you for all the time you give to us. The Spark Team will have a tiered rewards program that lets you cash-in on the hours you’ve volunteered. Some of these rewards include passes to the East Race, South Bend Cubs tickets, VPA swag, and more. When you join the Spark Team, you will gain access to our volunteer management system, Better Impact, which allow you to instantly sign up for volunteer opportunities that interest you!
