The Fine Arts Center is looking for volunteers for our Gallery Tours Program! Tour Leaders are a positive force in the museum, leading audience-centered tours primarily for students in grades K-12. Our tours encourage students’ exploration and curiosity through interactive touring. As a Tour Leader you will join a community of passionate volunteers who relish collaborative educational opportunities, such as learning the most up-to-date touring techniques and group management skills to support discussion and inquiry-based tours.

Our program is designed to allow flexibility for our volunteers, beginning with training sessions followed by a period of active touring where newer Tour Leaders are paired with more experienced Tour Leaders. Some of the many benefits of volunteering at the Fine Arts Center include, private gallery walks with curators and artists, as well as a free membership to the museum after meeting certain requirements.
