Would you like to share the richly diverse history of the U.S. Latino experience with visitors from all over the world? Then, join the first cohort of volunteers at the Molina Family Latino Gallery. The inaugural exhibition, ¡Presente! A Latino History of the United States, tells our national history from the perspectives of the diverse Latinas/os who lived it. This exhibition uncovers hidden and forgotten stories, connects visitors to Latino culture, and lays the foundation for understanding how Latinas/os inform and shape U.S. history. Please see the descriptions of the currently available volunteer opportunities.
Gallery Docents will support the Latino Center’s education vision of Experience, Learn, and Transform by providing highlights tours of the Molina Family Latino Gallery to intergenerational audiences, offering visitors a welcoming experience, and encouraging them to experience the gallery in multiple ways.
The Learning Lounge Volunteers will facilitate activities at the Learning Lounge and assist with hands-on activities that engage visitors of multiple ages, from children to adults, to connect with the gallery content, people, and places.
