How to Volunteer

Volunteering with the Ferguson Center for the Arts means that while helping to maintain the highest level of excellence in the fine and performing arts, you also have the opportunity to see some of the finest artists in the world for FREE.

Volunteers must:

• Be at least 18 years of age or a student at Christopher Newport University
• Complete a two-hour customer service training course


If you would like to volunteer, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at (757) 594-8043 or All ushers must complete training before they sign up for their events. There is no limit to the number of events one may sign up for. However, if there are more people signed up for a show than we have positions for a lottery system will be used.
