Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco Volunteer Application


Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF). The volunteer program is currently on hiatus. You are still welcome to submit a volunteer application, and we will contact you when we resume accepting new volunteers again. Please note: You must be at least 17 years old to apply.

Personal Information

Your Contact Information

Your Emergency Contact Info

Your Commitment

We request at least a 6-month commitment of 8 hours (two 4-hour shifts) per month. Can you commit to that?

Your Customer Service Experience

The primary volunteer position is a customer service/customer-facing position. (It is not behind-the-scenes.) This position requires being able to communicate information clearly, stand for long periods of time assisting museum visitors, respond in a timely manner, and be able to lift approximately 20lbs in the coat/parcel check.

Your Other Skills and Interests

The primary volunteer position is an on-the-floor customer service position. However, we also accept volunteers to work with the Flower Committee (professional experience is required), the Gardening Committee, and the Access Program (for accessibility-challenged and disabled visitors). Occasionally, volunteers are also needed for special events and clerical tasks, such as mailings or filing. Please indicate which of the following other areas of interest you have in additional to the primary volunteer role. You may select more than one option.

Your Flexibility

Volunteering requires flexibility and adaptability to changing demands, policies, and procedures. On a scale of 1 (low) to 5 (high), how would you rate your flexibility?
