PLEASE READ THIS APPLICATION CAREFULLY BEFORE APPLYING
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.
We request at least a 6-month commitment of 8 hours (two 4-hour shifts) per month. Can you commit to that?
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.
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.
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?
Please select the museum(s) at which you prefer to volunteer, either the de Young, the Legion of Honor, or both.
de Young Museum - 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive. Golden Gate Park
Legion of Honor - 100 34th Ave. Lincoln Park
Please select your preferred availability. Bear in mind that the Museums are closed on Mondays and the main shifts run from either 9am-1:15pm or 1pm-5:15pm. There is also an additional 'Mid-day' shift from 11:00am - 3:15pm at the Legion of Honor only. (This schedule is subject to change.)
