MOLAA Volunteers

MOLAA volunteers are remarkable people. They range in age from high school to active seniors representing a diverse range of ethnicities and backgrounds. They bring to the museum a special love of Latin American art and culture, and give to the museum a greater awareness of our universal community.

Among the most popular opportunities for volunteers are:

MOLAA Greeter
Are you a “people person”? If so, please share some of your time with us and help us welcome visitors who come to MOLAA for exhibition openings, curatorial talks, educational festivals and cultural events.

Educational Events
You’ll be able to explore many facets of Latin American art and culture by greeting visitors and assisting us in a variety of ways at Friday night events and bi-monthly Target Free Sunday festivals.

Museum Events and Public Programs
Do you love interacting with the public? If you do, then please consider becoming a part of our Museum events and public programs by helping us with an array of tasks, such as registration and ushering. Lend us your enthusiasm and charm and help us create a great ambiance for our guests!

MOLAA Outreach
Join our MOLAA Outreach team and help us spread the word in the community about all of our great exhibitions and public programs. You'll take part in off-site events where you'll interact with guests, hand out MOLAA information, and assist with art workshops. 

Departmental interns
If you’re interested in delving deeply into a particular aspect of the Museum, then we invite you to apply for a position as a departmental intern. Our interns assist with research and development by working directly within a specific department: Curatorial, Collections, Communications, Education, Graphic Design, Museum Events, or Membership. (Resumes and interviews are required for these positions. Please contact the Volunteer Manager for more information).


MOLAA volunteers are the magical element that makes special events special. They present a welcoming and friendly face to our MOLAA visitors and encourage them to come again. If you are interested in becoming a MOLAA volunteer, please fill out an application form.
