As youth volunteers are completing volunteer service in community arts, they are developing personally and professionally through participation in the administration of community arts programs and organizations. In this research paper, I examine youth volunteer service in two case study sites in the Pacific Northwest. Youth volunteers between 14-19 years of age were drawn from the case study sites of The Vera Project, Seattle, and Community Center for the Performing Arts, Eugene. Interpretive, qualitative research was conducted through the use of questionnaires, interviews of youth volunteers and organizational staff. A literature review of related fields and document analysis of the two case study sites serves as an introduction to available scholaraly research on youth volunteer service, youth leadership, and service learning. However, a gap exists in the research areas of youth volunteer service, youth leadership, and service learning in community arts organizations. The intent of this research is to increase awareness and create an impetus for dialogue and further research about youth participation in community arts organizations.
