Volunteer recruitment for 2022 is now complete. Stay tuned for the next round of recruitment by signing up for the MOA e-newsletter

Are you interested in museums and world arts and cultures? Do you like meeting new people? Are you an active learner? If so, you should consider joining our friendly team of MOA Volunteer Associates.

MOA volunteers contribute their time and expertise to many of the programs, activities and events at the Museum. Our success depends on the support of enthusiastic volunteers who benefit from thorough training and ongoing educational opportunities.

The success of MOA and its Volunteer Associates program is linked to being a diverse and welcoming place for all. Join us to work toward a more inclusive world. We encourage people of all identities, backgrounds and communities to contribute their experiences to the MOA Volunteer Associates.

Volunteer Associates + Committees

Volunteers become members of a self-governing Volunteer Association that works under the direction of MOA staff to meet many of our public education, research and collections needs. There are several volunteer committees through which volunteers can contribute their time and skills.

The following committees are recruiting volunteers in 2022. More information about each committee can be found on the committee pages:
