Volunteers are a vital presence at the Adler, helping carry out the mission of the museum by directly engaging with guests or assisting behind-the-scenes. We recruit on a seasonal basis and match potential volunteers with opportunities that meet a combination of their skills, interests, background, and schedule availability. Upon selection, volunteers will be asked to participate in a volunteer orientation session.
