Did you know that the Museum welcomes more than 50,000 students every year? It may sound daunting, but we have a dedicated group of Gallery Educators. They enthusiastically share their knowledge and engage diverse students in an interactive dialogue, providing a meaningful educational experience. This fall we are looking for some remarkable volunteers to join their ranks and serve as tour guides for youth, adult, and family groups. People of all faiths, backgrounds, and ages are encouraged to apply.
Interested parties should fill out a Volunteer Application before May 2. Once chosen for the program, candidates attend a 16-week course of study starting in September followed by a 10-week in-gallery practice course. Click here for more information.
