Volunteer Opportunities

On-Going Volunteer Opportunities

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.

Volunteer Positions

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.

Garden & Grounds Volunteer:

Do you enjoy working outdoors or have a passion for gardening?  Would you like to share your passion with others?  We seek volunteers who want to make a difference in the gardens. Training and materials will be provided.
