Dear Prospective Young At Art Museum Teen Volunteer, Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Young At Art Museum. The YAA High School Volunteer Program offers an unparalleled experience when choosing to support your community through Fine Arts and Education. Whether for a requirement, résumé builder or leisurely purposes, Young At Art Museum offers many different community service hour opportunities for all teens that meet the requirement of AT LEAST graduating 8th grade. It is important to know that the YAA Teen Leadership Program will constantly challenge and encourage our participants to learn and grow when volunteering with YAA— a true artist knows that their work is never done. Young At Art Museum is the ideal educational and artistic organization for teens to engage in and participate with their community— young adults will be presented with the opportunity to make a noticeable difference in the world around them by working with an artistically minded, individual-orientated, celebrated and approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The remaining time of the orientation will include a museum tour, exhibit exploration & art training session.

Parents and Volunteers: Read this page before YAA orientation
YAA Orientation will provide further information and training about all the different kinds of volunteer opportunities our museum has to offer. Participating in each kind of volunteer opportunity is essential— finding where you are most comfortable and effective will take some time but it is well worth the efforts! YAA HAS 4 MAIN VOLUNTEER TEAMS THAT WORK TOGETHER IN ORDER TO DELIVER THE YAA MISSION OF, “CREATING INSPIRING, INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES IN WHICH ART IS CENTRAL TO SHAPING YOUNG MINDS AND ENRICHING OUR COMMUNITY.”

MUSEUM EXHIBITS: The “home base” of YAA, weekday/end volunteers at the Museum will be responsible to help with a variety of tasks. Art birthday parties, tours, exhibit maintenance, prep work and additional art programming; among other duties, are a few of the most important jobs that weekend volunteers at the Museum have. Learn daily YAA operations! Museum Weekend Volunteer Characteristics: WELCOMING, PROFESSIONAL, HELPFUL & FLEXIBLE

ART INSTITUTE: The core of YAA as an organization, the opportunity to learn and teach art through practicing artists has always been our priority. Work in the YAA Art Institute alongside YAA Art Educators and be an art teacher’s assistant in classrooms during our programs of camps, classes and workshops. Interact with, learn, and teach kids through art!

SPECIAL EVENTS: YAA hosts a variety of special events for our museum members as well as the public. Special events generally take place Friday evenings or Saturdays and will therefore include similar responsibilities to weekend volunteering at the museum…with extra added art themes, programming & fun! Schedule, prep, and attend artful Special Events!

COMMUNITY OUTREACH: Part of the magic of YAA is the ability we have to share our passion for art with those outside the museum walls! YAA supports the arts by being present in the community and spreading art education to the rest of South Florida at other community events & happenings! Connect with the community & spread the YAA mission!

Much of volunteering with YAA is making personal connections with people through art. Whether or not you are a practiced artist does not matter— Young At Art Museum celebrates the skills and personalities of all our volunteers and each is just as important as the other. It is important to remember to be flexible, open to learning and trying new things, as well as figuring out where you feel most confident when volunteering with Young At Art Museum to set yourself up for volunteering and hands-on learning success!
