Become a Volunteer

Volunteer Program
The Norton Museum of Art offers diverse volunteer opportunities for students and adults, including working in the museum store, at the greeter’s desk, on the mailing crew, with special events, during Education Department programs, or in the Museum library. All of these projects are integral to a smoothly-run Museum. Museum staff provide guidance for volunteers as well as a monthly newsletter, informational up-dates, and festive social occasions during the season.

To find out how you can share your talents as a Museum volunteer, please contact the Program and Volunteer Coordinator, Malissa Reese at (561) 832-.5196, x 1113, or via email.

Docent Program
Docents are volunteers dedicated to learning about the Museum Collection and special exhibitions, and who enjoy sharing their knowledge through lively and interesting guided tours for our visitors. You do not need to have an art background to apply for the docent program—we will teach you! The only requirements are enthusiasm, flexibility, and a willingness to learn!

Applications for the docent program are accepted every two years. To learn more about the program, or to find out when the next application period begins, contact the Assistant Curator of Education, Jessica Kenneday, at 561.832.5196, ext. 1132, or via email.

Generous underwriters of this Program include the Linda Silpe Endowment for the Continuing Education of Docents and the Mahon Endowment for Docent Education.
