Volunteering At Glenbow

As an organization, we believe that volunteers are vital to the work we do. They act as strong advocates in the community. Thanks to hundreds of dedicated individuals, Glenbow Museum has a strong and vital volunteer program for 50 years. Through their enthusiasm, efforts, and involvement we are able to enhance our programs, better manage our collections, and provide our visitors with a great experience.

Glenbow Volunteers represent the museum in all capacities, whether they are frontline, serving visitors in various programs or the Glenbow Shop, or behind the scenes, ensuring that our collections are well kept and up to date. Our volunteers are all ages, come from all backgrounds, and are passionate about sharing their time, talents, and energy with us. Some volunteers have been with us over 20 years and continue to volunteer regularly.

Current Opportunities

Applications for Discovery Room Art Assistants will be accepted between June 1 and October 1, 2017.

The Glenbow Discovery Room is seeking youth, post-secondary students, and adults with an interest in learning more about museums, art, facilitation and material preparation. Weekend and occasional Friday evening and special event day opportunities are available. Volunteers will work alongside Museum Educators in the Discovery Room. Experience or artistic ability is not necessary however an interest in art, museums, and education is recommended. Discovery Room Art Assistants volunteer between 12 noon to 3 pm or 1 pm to 4 pm most weekends with a recommended 1 to 2 shifts per month. Opportunities during the year will also include occasional Friday evenings and one day special events as well as possibilities to assist as a Glenbow Event Volunteer (community days, member events, film nights, behind the scene tours, etc) may be a possibility depending on the needs of the museum. Scheduling is very flexible with respect to exams schedules and family commitments as volunteers utilize the Sign-Up Genius program to self-direct their volunteering schedule.
