STARS serves the Athens community by assisting The Classic Center and Visit Athens at various events.

Join the STARS Team: Application Process

After completing the online application form, your account is subject to review. Once approved, you will be contacted by The Classic Center’s House Manager, who will provide you with a background check authorization form and a liability waiver. Applicants are required to complete all of the following items to become active in the program:

  • Waiver of Liability: This document outlines the nature of voluntary engagement with The Classic Center. In summary, it acknowledges your responsibility for behavior and general risks while volunteering at The Classic Center.
  • Background Check: Background checks and personal information shared with the program in any way will be kept strictly confidential. Background check paperwork will be processed by The Classic Center’s Human Resources Department. Any concerns about the process or results should be directed to the Theatre Manager, who will confidentially work with Human Resources to determine appropriate advisement. Please note that not all incidents on background reports are grounds for dismissal from the program.
  • Training Session: Upon completing the previous items, STARS must attend one of several training sessions. This training will further define safety measures, company culture, expectations, and personal conduct. All volunteers will sign a Policy Acknowledgment Form to confirm that you understand our policies and agree to abide. You will be notified of future training session dates.
