Volunteers help the museum champion women through the arts by interacting with visitors, serving as welcoming and passionate representatives of the institution, and assisting NMWA staff.
We are not currently recruiting volunteers. We will update this page with new opportunities as they arise.
Become a Docent
The museum’s Docent Corps is a team of talented and dedicated individuals who serve the museum as volunteer educators. In advance of reopening, NMWA is recruiting a new docent class.
Docents facilitate high quality, in-person, interactive, visitor-centered collection and exhibition experiences for adult groups.
Docents commit to an initial training, lasting approximately one year, and at least two years of service.
