The Georgia Museum of Art has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for patrons of any age. Our volunteers are important contributors to the success of the museum. They work in the Museum Shop, the library, as docents, during special events and during educational events. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the appropriate department.

The Georgia Museum of Art's docent corps is a specially trained group of volunteers who lead tours of the museum's permanent collection and temporary exhibition galleries. Community docents lead tours and suitcase tours and participate in continuing education programs. This program requires a two-year commitment.
This fall, Carissa DiCindio, curator of education, will offer an ARED 5230/7230 Special Topics Course: Engaging Art Museum Audiences as Student Docents on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:45.
This course will focus on how museum audiences interact with works of art and how docents can facilitate these experiences. It will include readings, discussions and activities in the galleries of the Georgia Museum of Art. Students will learn about the museum’s collection and give tours as student docents.
Open to all art students.
The museum also offers volunteer internships for undergraduate and graduate students and has worked with UGA’s Young Dawgs program to provide internships for high school students.
