Kentucky Center Volunteer Services and Access Services are excited to be collaborating on a Volunteer Wellness Program! We hosted the first of seven classes on January 13th in Todd Hall. The goal of the Volunteer Wellness Program is to promote physical, mental, and emotional health in our volunteers, and provide them with different opportunities to engage on a more personal level with elements of the performing arts.
In this spring session, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in Zumba Gold classes. Through these classes, they will learn a variety of steps and movements from different genres of dance, while also focusing on balance, flexibility, and cardio health. This program is just a small part of our investment in the well-being of our volunteers and shows our gratitude for all that they do to support The Kentucky Center!
The Kentucky Center is proud to have 500 active and friendly volunteers who contributed nearly 60,000 hours of service last year. Volunteers are an integral part of The Kentucky Center’s team. They are the face of The Kentucky Center to patrons, the first to greet them when they arrive for an event and the last face they see as they leave. Volunteers fill a variety of roles here at The Kentucky Center. These include ticket takers, ushers, greeters, tour guides, bus assistants, as well as manning our information desk and coat check, and providing important support for our administrative functions and Access Services Program. The high quality of service delivered by volunteers is a critical piece in The Kentucky Center’s mission to provide unparalleled programming and cultural events to the region.
