Volunteer with Us

We welcome and appreciate all volunteers!

We rely heavily on the dedication, passion and talent of volunteers of all kinds, from all walks of life. As our programs expand, we will need even more friends willing to dedicate their time and compassion to enhancing the quality of life of people living with dementia.

Volunteer FAQ’s

  • How do I get started?

    Please complete the Volunteer Form and sign up for a four-part training. You’ll get an overview of what dementia is and isn’t, a sense of our approach at ARTZ Philadelphia, and some time to learn and practice together. You’ll also gain hands-on experience working with our program participants. After training with us, you can begin volunteering as soon as you feel comfortable.

  • I'm only available evenings and weekends. Can I still volunteer?

    All of our monthly ARTZ Connect, ARTZ @ the Museum, and ARTZ in the Making programs take place on weekday mornings and afternoons. Some special programs, like ARTZ Notes, do take place on the weekend. There are periodic opportunities for volunteering behind the scenes in-person and remotely – between exhibitions, community engagement days, and special events, we hope to find a good time and an exciting way for you to get involved!

  • What kinds of volunteering opportunities are available?

    Remote volunteering helping with online events, communications, assisting staff, and other behind the scenes tasks. In-person volunteering at art-making and/or art appreciation programs in care communities. Volunteering in-person at museum programs and other special events. Or, a combination of the two, help out both remotely via your computer and in-person.

  • Where do your programs take place?

    Programs take place at partnering day centers, care communities, arts centers, museums, and other cultural centers throughout Greater Philadelphia (Including Bensalem, Bryn Mawr, Center City, Chadds Ford, Chestnut Hill, Doylestown, Germantown, Haverford, Horsham, Mount Airy, Royersford, and Warminster.) 

    We are engaged in community-based projects in Hunting Park, Germantown, Logan, Olney, and West Oak Lane.

    Many of our program locations are not close to public transportation, so having a car is helpful. Please check out our partners page for more information.

    Many of our programs also take place online, via video conferencing software, and can be joined from any location.

    Some programs combine both online and in-person events.
