Volunteering at the Torpedo Factory Art Center is a wonderful way to become more involved in the arts community while serving as a vital resource for sustaining the Art Center’s day-to-day operations. Each year, volunteers of all ages bring their skills, perspectives, and talents to enhance the experience of visitors. Some volunteers maintain a regular schedule each week to work on ongoing projects, while others prefer helping out as needed with specific events or activities. Through their efforts, the Torpedo Factory Art Center is able to provide exceptional programs and events that reach more than a half million visitors annually.


Visitor Services volunteers act as ambassadors for the Torpedo Factory Art Center at the information desk. This position is ideal for those available on a more regular basis. Their main responsibilities are to help welcome visitors, orient them in the building, lead tours, and share helpful information about TFAC and Old Town Alexandria.
