Visitors Information Center Volunteer Program


If you know and love Henderson County, the perfect volunteer opportunity awaits you with the Visitor Information Center located in Downtown Hendersonville. This is a chance for you to share your knowledge of Western North Carolina, while also learning more through ongoing training programs and educational tours.

The Visitors Center corps of volunteers has grown into a family network of new friendships and close bonds with the staff and one another.  The Visitors Center is a very pleasant and fun place in which to work and serve our county.

Many volunteers work several days a week in different agencies and enjoy the camaraderie and relaxed atmosphere of the Visitor Center.   They have the opportunity to meet and interchange with people from all walks of life from all over the world.

The Visitors Center could not operate on the level of success it enjoys today without the very responsible family of “Volunteers” working alongside staff members.


The Henderson County Visitor Information Center serves to assist travelers upon their arrival to Henderson County. The Visitors Information Center is open seven days a week to assist visitors by answering questions, giving maps & directions, assisting with hotel reservations and offering travel, dining and entertainment information. The Center is stocked with Vacation Planners, maps, and area brochures.

Volunteer opportunities include area familiarization tours, meaningful friendships, occasional complimentary tickets to area attractions, and volunteer parties.

Volunteers are needed year-round, the Visitors Center is open 7 days weeks, closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.


Volunteers are needed during Special Events to fill key positions at Garden Jubilee, Music On Main Street, and the Street Dances. Volunteers provide assistance with operations of the events, and offer hospitality to the vendors and festival goers. Please join us!
