Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers are more than just appreciated members of the Rockwell community—they are the very foundation of our success.

Volunteer Holiday Party 2016

Benefits to volunteers are numerous, including endless opportunities to engage in The Rockwell’s many educational programs and lectures, annual field trips and recognition events, as well a generous discount in the Museum Store.

In return, volunteers work as ambassadors for the museum, helping the community fall in love with The Rockwell and the art in its galleries.

Rockwell volunteers receive an initial orientation, as well as topic-specific trainings throughout the year. All volunteers are required to pass a background check and be at least 18 years of age.


If you are passionate about fostering meaningful, interactive arts experiences with children and adults, consider becoming a docent! Our docents are trained to lead Museum tours for both youth and adults, and can even go on the road for outreach programs at local schools. Minimum 30 hours commitment annually (including training).


 If you enjoy facilitating creative learning experiences, consider becoming a program assistant! Assistants help to manage and facilitate the many family art programs and student exhibitions held at the Museum and Art Lab throughout the year. Minimum 20 hours commitment annually (including training).
