Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Provide scholarships for students in "The Region" who are interested in pursing education at an Indiana university with a focus on the performing arts, theatre production, film production or supporting fields within these focus areas. Build a community theatre in the greater Merrillville, Indiana area where citizens from "The Region" can come and partake in creative activities. Activities aimed at enhancing the range and quality of performers and artists, whilst securing regular giving towards the operation of the HopeGil Center.
Our organization started as a booster organization whose purpose was to support the student thespians of Merrillville High School in Merrillville, IN. But when we decided to officially found the organization, we decided that supporting thespians at the high school, while noble and important, was only scratching the surface of what is possible in Northwest Indiana ("The Region"). So, we decided to start a foundation and named it Merrillville Thespian Booster Club in honor of our initial purpose. We incorporated in 2015 and were officially recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a charitable organization in 2016. Today, Merrillville Thespian Booster Club, Inc. (MTBClub) is a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt charitable organization (#47-3135794) established to promote public support for the formation of a the HopeGil Center for the Performing Arts (HopeGil Center) that will support our expanded mission.
