The term grassroots is thrown around often but when associated with the word volunteer, a whole new concept can be employed. At Yellow House, our volunteers are a supportive community with a shared mission: connecting art and community to build understanding, inspire empathy, and spark civic engagement.
Since opening August 2017, Yellow House has involved volunteers who have given freely of their time, talent and treasure to make sure the mission is realized in every aspect of the work that goes on. From deinstalling an exhibition to preparing for an upcoming opening to providing community outreach to bring attention to the difficulty of marginalized people, volunteers with Yellow House are integral to its success.
Our volunteers are from varied paths… the corporate sector, newly-planted retirees, grandparents who share their love of the arts and community activism… just to name a few. One volunteer notes, “I am passionate about the city of Jacksonville, and the art and culture within it. Yellow House is dedicated to doing the work and presenting exhibits that need to be seen. The impact of Yellow House is already being felt in this community and farther. That’s something that I am honored to be a part of.”
If you are interested in being a volunteer at Yellow House or have any questions, contact Phyllis Bell-Davis, executive volunteer, at email@example.com. We would be pleased to have you in our family.
