We need you!
The East Hawaii Cultural Center cannot fully serve the public without the strong support of our volunteers. EHCC’s Volunteer Program is a great way to interact with the art community and expand your knowledge of both the contemporary local and national art scenes, as well as the daily functions of an art gallery. Schedules are flexible and there are no minimum monthly hours to fulfill. “Basic Membership” is gifted to volunteers who assist 40 hours or more a year.

Please contact our office at 961-5711 for more information.
