As a non-profit community performing arts center, UPH thrives thanks to the community spirit of a multitude of volunteers. We invite you to be part of the effort to create a vibrant arts scene in downtown Saratoga by volunteering with UPH. Volunteers serve as event support and on committees. If you’ve got some free time and are looking for a way to support the arts and give something back to your community, UPH welcomes your involvement!
