Join our Team of Arts Volunteers!
Our volunteers are an exceptionally helpful, friendly, professional, and creative part of our team. A very special THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who have ushered, built sets, designed and distributed posters, stuffed envelopes, donated materials to our archives, created data bases, helped out at First Fridays, and a host of other services.
Share your interests or talents, or learn a new skill all while having fun and making friends. With your assistance, we can continue to offer classes, outreach programs, performances, exhibits and special events that make the Academy an exciting place to visit and work.
If you would like to volunteer at the Academy of Fine Arts, we are especially looking for people to answer phones from 9am-5pm, or help with our mailings.
There's no pressure; volunteering will suit your schedule. Anything from a one-time volunteering stint to several hours once a month, or once a week, or more is appreciated.
