Charlotte Street Ambassadors (Volunteers)

Charlotte Street has worked for over two decades to build the arts community in Kansas City. Several artists that come through our programs go on to have successful careers. Come join us as we continue to make a difference in Kansas City and the art world!

We are always seeking dedicated and ambitious volunteers to assist Charlotte Street in fulfilling our mission of serving artists in our community. Charlotte Street actively seeks ambassadors to help with gallery assistance, events, guerrilla marketing, and in-office tasks. Charlotte Street offers volunteers the opportunity to engage in their community, make connections, and are recognized through special events as a vital part of the organization’s mission. Last but not least, our Ambassadors get their own t-shirt and access to special CSF events, in addition to our very grateful thanks.
