Become a Volunteer
All our programs, workshops and events are supported by a team of incredible volunteers. We're grateful to everyone who has generously donated their time and talents to the Museum of Craft and Design.
We constantly need volunteers for a variety of duties on weekdays and weekends. Volunteers may assist staff at special events, adult programs like our Speaker Series or Etsy Meet & Make: Craft Lab, or our fun MakeArt workshops for children ages 6-12. Our docent and internship programs are currently being developed. Details will be posted as soon.

The Museum of Craft and Design is looking for Volunteer Docents to begin our docent program. We are looking for individuals that are passionate and knowledgeable about art, craft, and design; that are friendly, reliable, and independent. Bonus if you are familiar with the Dogpatch neighborhood, or San Francisco in general. The main duties will be to interact with the public, offer information about exhibits, membership, and the museum to visitors, give scheduled tours of the exhibits to groups, and monitor the gallery for the safety and security of the art and guests. Docents will be present on the floor during open hours to answer questions and add value to the visitor experience, and are expected to do their own research on exhibits and artists. Previous experience as a docent is very helpful, but not necessary- just a willingness to learn, to support the museum, and to grow our docent program.
We are looking for docents available anytime during our open hours, but especially Thursday-Sunday.
If interested, please send resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail to 2569 Third St, San Francisco, CA 94107.
