First Night Akron Volunteers
Join our team by becoming a First Night Akron volunteer
Your assistance will ensure that First Night is a meaningful and joyous arts experience for all our guests. Volunteer as a family, with a group of friends, or by yourself.
Each volunteer will receive FREE admission to First Night with special volunteer credentials, so you can enjoy the evening while you’re not volunteering.
If you would like more information about volunteering at First Night, or to volunteer before or after New Year’s Eve, call Tiffany Schmidt at 330-535-3179 ext. 211 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
