YAA Orientation will provide further information and training about all the different kinds of volunteer opportunities our museum has to offer. Young At Art Teen Volunteers will naturally find where they fit best…and this is useful for both YOU as a volunteer and YAA as an organization. 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!
Art Institute Volunteers Characteristics: DEDICATED, CREATIVE, PATIENT & MATURE

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!
Event Volunteer Characteristics: FOCUSED, ENERGETIC & FRIENDLY

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!
Community OUTreach Volunteer Characteristics: RESPONSIBLE, KNOWLEDGABLE & PUNCTUAL

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!
