Dress Code

It can get chilly in the studio, so we recommend bringing a sweater or jacket.


We require all new volunteers to attend an orientation/training session.

Age Requirements

All participants must be at least 16 years of age. Organizations that have youth members must supply a chaperone and can volunteer during any shift time. Youth individuals may volunteer, but can do so only during the morning and/or afternoon shifts because of curfew laws.
