Volunteer Opportunities

PIVOT (Programmatic Interns and Volunteers Organized Together)

The PIVOT Program provides opportunities for volunteers and interns to get involved with the Society of Arts and Crafts in a meaningful way. We appreciate the many volunteers who dedicate their time and talents ensuring our programs are adequately staffed.

The Society of Arts and Crafts is looking for volunteers to give us a hand year-round. We are grateful for your talents: guest engagement; marketing and outreach; administrative tasks; education; hospitality and beyond!

Volunteers have the opportunity to engage with the Society in various ways:

CraftBoston: Volunteer for CraftBoston Holiday 2017 Volunteers make this twice-annual craft show run smoothly. Volunteers are needed from Wednesday to Sunday for set-up, greeting, ticket-sales, booth-sitting, and take-down. The original Volunteer opportunity at the Society! CraftBoston specific call-for-volunteers will be circulated by email twice annually in anticipation for each show.

Exhibition Gallery: Gallery Volunteers have the opportunity to engage with guests in an educational role. They share details about the exhibition including information on artists and objects as well as monitor the gallery.

Retail Gallery: Retail Volunteers help guests learn more about artists represented at the Society and the objects for sale. Answer questions about techniques and materials, share stories about artists, and help guests touch and try out objects. Sales experience not necessary. Let us know if you’re comfortable taking payments and using a register.

Public Programs: Give a hand with programs such as receptions, lectures, workshops, and demos. Tasks will vary depending on the program.

Administrative: Back-of-the-house needs help, too! Project-specific opportunities will pop up throughout the year. Let us know your skills and interests, and we’ll reach out.
