Volunteer Opportunity: Visitor and Member Services Volunteers

The Athenaeum seeks friendly volunteers from its membership to welcome members into the building beginning in September 2017. Visitor and member services volunteers will work in three-hour shifts during members-only hours to

  • Scan membership cards when members enter the building
  • Provide information on the day's events and programs
  • Direct members with questions to the appropriate staff people
  • Politely share information about public hours and services with potential visitors

Visitor and member services volunteers will need to have basic computer skills, including an ability to use email, be comfortable using the telephone, and have excellent customer service skills. Two training sessions will be held during the week of August 28. 

Please contact Hannah Weisman at weisman@bostonathenaeum with any questions or to request a volunteer application.
