Visitor Services Assistant
The visitor services assistant greets visitors, performs check-in duties, and answers general inquiries. The VSA provides the initial impression of the museum, and friendliness and enthusiasm are key. This position also requires an ability to perform simple functions on a touchscreen computer (or a willingness to learn).
We seek a volunteer VSA who is able to work at least one day each week (full or partial days), during our open hours Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10-4.
You must be 18 or older. The physical demands for this position are low and it is open to those with limited mobility.
We are looking for outgoing volunteers to give tours of the building to museum visitors. Tours bring to life the history of science and medicine in Indiana through the exploration of an authentic 1896 medical laboratory, which was once part of Indiana's Central State psychiatric hospital.Our volunteers work during our open hours Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10-4 and occasionally for special tours and events.
It does take time and effort to learn to lead the tours, and we are looking for people who can commit to volunteer regularly (at least twice a month, full or partial days). The position requires that you complete several hours of training and learn a sizable amount of historical information.
All docents must be 18 or older. The tours cover two floors and last an hour or more - so it is not a good position for someone with limited mobility.
In addition to giving tours, there may also be opportunities to work on projects related to collections, cataloging, and/or clerical work.
