We are grateful for the support of our volunteers and we encourage you to explore the stimulating opportunities below for helping Vizcaya.
If you enjoy meeting and working with new people and are at least 18 years old, the Vizcaya Volunteer Guides might be the right opportunity for you!
The dedicated men and women who make up the Volunteer Guides have offered tours to the public since 1954—just one year after Vizcaya opened as a museum. Tours are 45 minutes long and discussion based, and they focus on how Vizcaya combines European traditions with an American, and very Miami, context.
As a volunteer, you will receive specialized training in museum education methodology, tour content and facilitation techniques.
Volunteer Guides training sessions take place once a week for six weeks.
For more information about the Volunteer Guides training program, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer opportunities in the gardens can be found through Hands on Miami.
