Volunteers provide invaluable support at each of our three annual festivals. Positions require the ability to communicate well and interact easily with people and the desire to work in accordance with the mission statement of Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. Attending training and a volunteer orientation are required.
Work at Family Fun Days on select Saturdays and Sundays, and assist with projects like origami and kamishibai (Japanese story-telling). Volunteer for our Sushi and Stroll evenings, on select summer Friday evenings, or help at our exhibit openings. These positions are available throughout the year.
Also, just for Students, we recruit high school and college students for Summer Tour Plus each summer. Volunteers help prepare materials needed for activities for visiting student groups and work with children as they learn games and create projects. This program is offered Tuesday through Friday, beginning in June and ending in August. The shift is from 9:30am – 1:00pm. We look for students who can volunteer throughout the summer.
