Summer Volunteer Opportunities

The Polygon Gallery is looking for Volunteers for our upcoming Summer Season. Our amazing Volunteers are responsible for providing The Polygon’s community of visitors and members with exemplary guest experiences.

Volunteers will be mainly assisting outside on Carrie Cates Deck with our drop-in family programming called Kids First each Sunday.

Duties include, but are not limited to:

· Art Kit Preparation. Preparations will take place throughout the week in the gallery prior to the event.
· Lifting and loading tables and supplies, including setting up and taking down workstations
· Keeping areas tidy: Families will be making crafts throughout the day and will need to have volunteers ensuring the workstations/ground area are kept tidy.
· Ensuring there are enough materials for families. We will ask that volunteers help retrieve addition art materials from the gallery for the outside program.
· Be available for other positions within the gallery when needed.

Volunteers should have: Experience in family programing, customer service, ideally in a gallery, museum, cultural, tourism, or hospitality environment.
· Available for 8 Sundays starting June 23rd 2022
