Learn More About Volunteering at the Heart

Our volunteers are at the HEART of our organization! We rely on support from YOU to help produce fun events for our community. It’s fun and rewarding to work at our events and a great way to get involved, make friends and meet new people in the community.  Did you know it takes nearly 100 volunteers for White Squirrel Weekend, 75 for our Downtown Clean Up Days and another 40 for Halloweenfest?

That means we have lots of opportunities for you to lend a hand. Volunteers can distribute event posters, pour beer at White Squirrel Weekend, work at the Heart of Brevard information tent and help answer questions about the event, or help with setup and breakdown.

Interested? Fill out our volunteer interest form below.Please note that this form is only for general volunteer interest. For each event we will send out an individual sign up form with specific times and volunteer opportunities.
