What do volunteers do?

Volunteers are one of the richest resources here at the Torrance Art Museum. After a brief training session and a seasonal exhibition orientation that includes refreshments and a special tour, volunteers are ready to interact with visitors of all ages and for a variety of public services for the museum. TAM Volunteers are the first point of contact for museum visitors and public at the information/reception desk. They help field a variety of inquires and provide information about the exhibitions, programs, and services. They ensure that attendance to the museum is tracked and that visitors sign in and adhere to museum policies. Volunteers are honored yearly by the City of Torrance and TAM Volunteers are encouraged to attend special field trips and mixer events.
