Volunteer Opportunities

On-Going Volunteer Opportunities

Our 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; and more.

Volunteer Positions

Office Volunteer:

These “on-call” volunteers help with mailings.

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.

Docent Program:

Our fun-loving docent group meets every second Monday to discuss, review and share information. With oversight and guidance, each docent creates their own tour which has an emphasis on their area of interest plus an overview of other collections. When docents are prepared, they will co-lead their first several tours with a docent mentor. Free docent tours are offered on the first and last Saturday of the month at 1pm. If interested in our docent training, please contact our Curator of Education at sorcha@maryhillmuseum.org

Check out our events for the next docent meeting.

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.
