Old School Square is seeking friendly, upbeat, eager to learn, open personalities to engage with our audiences and support our staff. With many venues to choose from, volunteers can find the “perfect” job. Instead of counting your days, make your days count!
To become an Old School Square Volunteer 2019-20, follow these 3 steps:
- Take the Historical Site Tour given by one of our fabulous volunteer site docents on the first Thursday of every month. The tour begins in the Cornell Museum at 11am or 1pm. Please, identify yourself as a volunteer candidate to the docent as they will have more information for you at the end of the tour.
- Become a member of Old School Square. All volunteers are members at all levels. Find the level comfortable for you and join in the fun!
- Register into our on-line Volunteer Hub scheduler. Download the volunteer request form or select shifts right online. You will be instructed/trained on your first shift by a staff member or experienced volunteer.
We accept snowbird volunteers on a case by case basis and encourage those interested in helping out to make us aware of any special skills you have that might benefit Old School Square.
CORNELL ART MUSEUM
Contemporary art exhibits in a restored, 1913 school building. This volunteer opportunity is for those seeking an art infused environment, who love interacting with the public and are interested in sharing the history of our historic site. Tasks include: greeting visitors, processing sales in the Museum Store, learning the story of Old School Square’s evolution and general support for the Museum staff. Engaging, smiling, happy people please apply.
CREATIVE ARTS SCHOOL
Art, photography and writing in a creative environment. If you love art or are an artist that would like to help support the staff that brings all of the art classes and workshops to our facility, this could be the job for you. Volunteers help with the Creative Art School Meet-ups, greet visitors for open house events and student/instructor art receptions. Hands-on help is sometimes needed with younger student art activities (background checks are required for anyone working with minors).
World-class arts & entertainment in an intimate, 1925 theatre. Our volunteer ushers have that extra something. We desire courteous, friendly, and sociable people. You will be trained in our specific theatre and emergency procedures. No previous ushering experience is required; however, a smile is. This volunteer position requires a uniform (dressy all black outfit with your Old School Square badge.) Snowbirds will be considered on a case by case basis.
World-class outdoor arts & entertainment in an outdoor setting. Live music, ballet, family shows, festivals and Free Friday Concerts are all presented at the outdoor pavilion. Volunteers must enjoy the atmosphere and festivities associated with events presented outside. Programming has been expanded to include more music and dance performances. Volunteers scan tickets, assist with seating, provide directions, sell light concessions, work in the VIP area and more.
Delray’s hot, new entertainment venue is our 1925 Fieldhouse! Formerly known as the Vintage Gymnasium, the Fieldhouse presents a variety of events and hosts other non-profits for their events. If you like late night fun, then this is the ticket for you. Volunteer responsibilities include: greeting, using the handheld scanner, cashiering and having fun!
