Volunteer & Co-op Opportunities

Youth Advisory: The MacLaren Youth Advisory Council meets monthly to develop and oversee youth projects, events and exhibitions related to the arts. This is a wonderful volunteer experience that looks great on a resumé or college application.

Co-op Students: the MacLaren Art Centre offers co-op programmes with our Education Department and our Volunteer Services Department. Please have your teacher contact the MacLaren Art Centre at 705-721-9696. For more information on youth volunteer opportunities, call Peter Bogle at 705-721-9696 or email peter@maclarenart.com.

Ambassador Programme: MacLaren Ambassadors represent the Art Gallery in the community. With staff support, Ambassadors attend community events, such as festivals, fairs, children’s programmes and more, with the goal of raising awareness and promoting various Gallery programmes. An Ambassador will have the opportunity to engage with community members through their knowledge and experience in being a part of the MacLaren Art Centre.
