The Guild of Volunteers
The Currier Museum of Art Guild of Volunteers was organized in 1982. It is a self-governing organization of men and women who are members of the museum and contribute their time and talents to supporting the museum's activities including: guest services, museum shop, library, tours, art-making and family activities, and other special projects.
Currier volunteers learn new skills and have the chance to use or refine established ones. As a volunteer, you'll share your knowledge and enthusiasm with museum visitors and provide an invaluable service to the community. Volunteers enjoy programs and events that are planned especially for Guild members. Museum staff and Guild members provide training for all new volunteers.
All volunteers participate in an orientation program that provides insight into the opportunities available for volunteers and identifies the responsibilities of volunteers. In addition to completing the registration form and attending an orientation, all volunteers, if not already a member of the Currier Museum of Art, are expected to become a member within six months from the start of their service.
Currier volunteers can log in to this password protected site to log their service hours and view volunteer opportunities, meetings, and trainings.
For the first time in three years, the Currier Museum will be offering free training for new Zimmerman House docents. Don’t miss this opportunity to join this incredible group of talented and dedicated volunteers!
New Zimmerman House Docent Training – February-April 2014
Zimmerman House docents lead team-tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Zimmerman House for diverse audiences from early April through early January each year. Training for new Zimmerman House docents will begin in February 2014 and will take place on a weekly basis over the course of three months. Training focuses on Frank Lloyd Wright, the commission and design of the Zimmerman House, and how to teach in a historic house. Once trained, Zimmerman House docents meet regularly about every other month and are expected to lead about two tours a month. A background in architecture, art history and/or education is desirable but not required. The ideal Zimmerman House docent would have an interest in architecture and teaching, a good sense of humor, and a flexible schedule. Please send applications and questions about the program to Jane Seney, Educator for Tour and Docent Programs, email@example.com. Zimmerman House docents are welcome to train to become Museum docents as well.
Please submit your volunteer application by Friday, January 31. Download the application here.
