The Chelsea Art Museum offers a terrific opportunity to get involved in New York’s thriving art scene. Take advantage of everything CAM has to offer all while making a valuable contribution to a charitable organization!
CAM Ambassadors is a volunteer program consisting of a dedicated group of individuals who donate their time to the Museum to lead exhibition tours, contribute to our education programs, and generally facilitate the public’s interaction with the museum.
CAM ambassadors serve as the face of the museum to visitors, welcoming them and being a resource of information about the museum and its exhibitions. CAM ambassador is a volunteer hybrid position between docent and security guard. In other words, ambassadors spend time in the galleries encouraging guests to learn about the museum while supervising the galleries to ensure the safety and preservation of the artwork. They may also lead exhibition tours of the Museum’s exhibitions and permanent collection.
Ideal candidates will have a background in and/or passion for contemporary art or arts education, strong public speaking skills, and comfort working with people of all backgrounds, ages, and levels of familiarity with art. Fluency in one or more foreign languages is preferable.
Training and Commitment
CAM ambassadors are trained by Museum staff and provided information about the museum and the exhibitions. Although a long-term commitment is preferable CAM is extremely flexible when coordinating volunteers and can accommodate candidates with both extensive and limited time to donate.
CAM ambassadors enjoy free access to CAM’s exhibitions and extensive public programming including concerts, theater, dance performances, panel discussions etc. They also receive invitations to exhibition opening receptions and CAM parties and are provided free admission passes for friends and family.
