Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the many, varied ways to volunteer at Filoli on Committees such as, House and Garden Self-Guided Docents, Weekend Tour Docents, Nature Education Docents, Member Services, Visitor Services, Public Relations, Hospitality, Garden Information Docents, Floral Design, Flower Arranging, Garden, Art, the Café, the Garden & Gift Shop, and Pianists who play in the Ballroom.

Fans of Downton Abbey will enjoy volunteering at Filoli. As a Filoli volunteer, one can spend a few hours every week or two in this Gentleman's 654-acre Estate and take a step back in time. Volunteers get behind-the-scenes looks at the elegant Georgian mansion and world-famous Garden and are also able to participate in Filoli’s special events if desired. Filoli is where parts of the TV series Dynasty were filmed plus more than a dozen movies, including "The Game," "Joy Luck Club" and "Heaven Can Wait."
