Why volunteer with us?
As a volunteer led non-profit organization, we count on our dedicated volunteers and board members, in partnership with staff, to allow us to be a strong voice for inspiring and growing the arts in the Township of Scugog. By engaging community members we can better advocate for the arts with our local heritage and diversity in mind. Working with the SCA is a great way to make new connections, gain experience and give back to the community.
