If you’re looking for a place to share your gifts and talents, this is the place for you. The MAC family is a wonderful community, and we welcome you with open arms. We consider our volunteers to be Ambassadors of the MAC. As an ambassador, you are the face of the MAC – the promoter, the champion, and supporter of the arts in Milford and beyond. You help us to share the joy of everything we have to offer just be being part of our community. We have many volunteer opportunities, so take a look and let us know where you think you might fit in…
