Learn About Volunteering at Maryhill
Join us for an information session and reception to learn more about volunteer opportunities at Maryhill. No prior knowledge or special skills are required, just a desire to meet new people, learn about art and cultural history, and a willingness to give your time to a worthy organization. Whether it’s working with the public or behind-the-scenes, there are many ways to get involved. And, did we mention? It’s super fun too!
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Maryhill Museum of Art. We are always ready to welcome you into our active, social group. NO PREVIOUS ART HISTORY knowledge is required—just the desire to learn about art and cultural history, meet new people, and spread the joy of Maryhill and its collections to visitors who come from our community and far distances.
Time and distance are no obstacles to volunteering. We provide flexible schedules and will work with your interests to place you in the perfect volunteer position. Volunteers receive a 30% discount in our store; 20% discount on books in our shop; 10% discount in Loie’s Café; special volunteer-only trips; monthly optional educational experiences; and more.
Office Volunteer: These “on-call” volunteers help with mailing and general office duties.
Visitor Services: These special volunteers greet visitors and provide an overview of the collections, services and their locations. They walk the galleries to answer questions for our guests.
Events Volunteer: Volunteers help with various activities from set-up to facilitating a great experience. Events are planned in advanced and volunteers may sign up for jobs/time as their availability allows.
Collections Assistance: Working closely with the Curator of Art and Collections Manager these volunteers must be willing to be interviewed, trained, and maintain a regular schedule.
Interactive Gallery Guides: These volunteers give interactive tours to school groups, adult groups and specialized groups. They must attend a 6-week Saturday morning training class and optional monthly educational meetings.
