Volunteer at Arts Campus in Sitka Alaska helping manage facilities ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

The Sitka Fine Arts Campus is a former college campus that is now the home of the Sitka Fine Arts Camp, a nationally acclaimed arts camp, as well as many other organizations and events.
In 2011, SFAC was gifted the historic Sheldon Jackson College Campus. This college campus had been closed for four years and was in a state of complete disrepair. SFAC has since overseen one of the most extraordinary grassroots volunteer stories in our country: the revitalization of this National Historic Landmark. Between 2011 and 2015 one thousand volunteers (one-ninth of Sitkaโ€™s population) logged over 45,000 volunteer hours rebuilding the campus, demonstrating unprecedented community support and giving the Sitka Fine Arts Camp a permanent home.

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in spending time in the beautiful community of Sitka, Alaska who are willing to help with hospitality and maintenance of our campus buildings.
