Very Special Arts Festival:

Volunteering at the VSA Festival is a unique opportunity to work with children with disabilities from our local schools.

Docents:

Docents are dynamic, dedicated Museum volunteers with diverse backgrounds who lead tours on the permanent collection, visiting exhibitions, and Gardens, for school-aged children or adults. No previous teaching or art history experience is required as Docents will complete training sessions led by Museum staff. Docents learn to lead school tours with focus on the history of the permanent collection and Gardens. Once training is completed, docents make a weekly commitment of their time to be an important part of the Museum’s educational experience. If you are interested in being a member of the Docent Corps, please click here.

Junior Docents:

This program enables middle and high school students to learn about the collection through research, hands-on exploration and group discussion, and then share their knowledge with visitors through discussion and demonstration. These bright young adults also serve as one of The Cummer's most important volunteer corps. If you are interested in being a member of the Junior Docent Corps, please click here.
