Call for Volunteers

MOCA GA Needs Volunteers!

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA) needs volunteers to man the registration desk and greet visitors. We need volunteers to sign up for 10 am - 2 pm or 2 pm - 5 pm shifts Tuesday - Saturdays.

Volunteers are needed to greet visitors, direct them to the various exhibitions, answer simple questions about the exhibitions, hand out literature, encourage visitors to become members and participate in upcoming events, etc. In additions, volunteers will answer the phone, handle general inquiries about directions, exhibitions, opening dates and times, etc. and forward calls to staff members. MOCA GA will provide a brief training course and a volunteer handbook with all the information needed to do the job.

From time to time, volunteers will be asked to help with mailings or other general museum tasks. There will, however, be periods of time when things are very quiet so volunteers are encouraged to bring personal reading materials and/or tasks to fill their time at the reception desk.

Volunteers who help with the registration desk will be given the first opportunity to participate as special event volunteers, helping with our signature events such as MOCA GALA Art Auction, our largest fundraiser in the spring; Off-the-Wall Pin Up Show + Sale in the late fall; Art for Everyone, an off site event in the early fall and other workshops, exhibition openings and artist talks. In addition, our volunteers will be eligible for membership at MOCA GA after only 20 volunteer hours.

If you are interested in becoming a MOCA GA volunteer, please email MOCA GA at rsvp@mocaga.org, subject: Volunteers.
