The hospitality and service that volunteers extend is critical to creating first and lasting impressions of The Mendel Center experience among patrons and visitors. Each year, more than 100 men and women donate thousands of hours to ensure a high level of customer service, facilitate the safety and comfort of visitors, and provide assistance with administrative tasks vital to the operation of the facility.
The Mendel Center volunteer corps is committed to upholding professionalism and consistency in meeting patrons’ needs, and to fostering an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere reflective of the rich diversity of Michigan’s Great Southwest.
Not only do volunteers assist with Mainstage season performances, they are on hand to make sure many other events go smoothly including the Lake Michigan College commencement ceremony, student performances and recitals, Economic Club of Southwestern Michigan Speaker Series events, Southshore Concert Band performances, Blossomtime festivities, and much, much more.
