United We Serve and the Arts

Posted by Ben Burdick On June - 26 - 2009

This summer, from June 22 to September 11, 2009,  President and Mrs. Obama are calling on citizens to volunteer and give back to their community.  With this kind of national leadership and excitement about community service, artists and arts organizations have the opportunity to showcase the power of the arts by reaching out and offering their skills and services to their communities.  Post opportunities for people to get involved or volunteer some time at your community-based arts organizations by visiting www.Serve.gov and the All for Good database to search for “arts” opportunities in your city. 

Stay tuned for updates from Americans for the Arts at serve.artsusa.org, but in the meantime, what are some ways you think you could volunteer for the arts in your community?
