Become a Volunteer

We are always seeking dedicated individuals to join our team of volunteer docents. Docents lead hour long tours through the Museum talking with visitors about Wharton’s life, furniture, sculpture, architecture and functional art. Training is ongoing, and we are as flexible as possible with scheduling; we usually look for docents to do one tour a week but can accommodate other schedules.

While the majority of our volunteer needs are for Museum docents to lead tours of the Studio, we also have opportunities for volunteers interested in gardening and landscaping, assisting with hospitality and visitor service at events, and helping with Museum collections.

Our team of volunteer docents are essential to our daily operation and our spirit. We routinely gather together to share ideas and feedback, enjoy each other’s company and even take field trips.
