Summer Student Volunteer Experience

Come join the Museum and expand your experience and skills with our Student Summer Volunteering Experience. Spend your summer engrained in a fast paced and dynamic cultural institution. Ideal for high school students as well as those interested in museums, science, art, history, education, and retail-based careers. A great way to make connections, get involved in your community, and provide training in relevant fields.

 

Volunteer Opportunities:

  •  Summer Camp Volunteers – if you love interacting with children and are thinking of a career along those lines, this is your opportunity! Summer Camp Volunteers assist Museum Educators running the summer camps for children from ages 6 – 12.
     
  • Visitor Services Volunteers – if you are a people person, then this role is for you! Visitor Services Volunteers engage and connect with visitors at various entry points in the Museum and throughout our spaces. Their primary responsibilities involve greeting visitors, assisting them with their questions, allowing access into the galleries and facilitating the safekeeping of coats and bags. Our Visitor Services volunteers also assist during all of our special events, including all performances in the auditorium and festivals in the Aga Khan Park.
     
  • Gift Shop Volunteers – if you are into fashion and retail and love being immersed in beautiful things, then volunteer in our Gift Shop. Gift Shop Volunteers are responsible for facilitating product sales by addressing questions from customers, providing general information about the Museum and specific information about Store policies and procedures. They also assist the Shop Supervisor with product displays and the processing of new shipments.
