Volunteer Opportunities

  • Docents

Docents are enthusiastic volunteer teachers, ambassadors and tour guides who enjoy working with visitors of all ages, particularly school age visitors. Comprehensive training is offered in the fall, as well as monthly enrichment sessions on the Hunter permanent collection and special exhibitions. More details about the Hunter Museum Docent Program can be found here or contact Christine Bespalec-Davis, Manager of School and Teacher Programs, at cbespalec-davis@huntermuseum.org or 423-752-0990.

  • Summer Camp Volunteer

Availability: At least 6 hours a week during the months of June and July. The ideal applicant is a high school junior or senior with interests in art, education and young children. Camp volunteers aid summer camp counselors and instructors in the facilitation of camp activities; help campers complete tasks; help prepare snack; and are an extra set of eyes on campers during outdoor activities. For this opportunity, please contact Rachel Veal, studio and tour coordinator, at summer-camps@huntermuseum.org.
