Become a Volunteer
Our volunteers are the heart of ASPB. The ASPB Volunteer Program is an opportunity for undergraduate students with a deep interest in event programming or marketing to get involved with planning and executing ASPB events. The volunteer program offers many opportunities to develop professional and leadership skills in a fun, fast-paced environment by working with vendors, campus administrators, and ASPB directors to make ASPB events come to life!
ASPB hires a total of five volunteers in programming in the spring and fall quarters of each school year — each volunteer belonging to either the Concerts, Special Events, Films & Lectures, Contemporary Culture, Marketing, or Membership divisions. The volunteers contribute to the development and implementation of all events while supporting their respective divisions. ASPB also hires a group of volunteers for the events team who are not assigned to a particular division but instead serve all events.
All Volunteers must fulfill the following requirements:
- Maintain a quarterly AND cumulative 2.5 GPA

- Attend all ASPB meetings
