The Ringling offers facilitated experiences for families with children and volunteers are needed to support these programs.
We're looking for self-directed, energetic, and dependable individuals who are physically comfortable walking and standing for prolonged periods and lifting/holding up to 10 lbs. who can comfortably engage with children and adults from diverse backgrounds.
Volunteers in this role set-up programs, lead programs under the direction of Education staff, and clean-up materials after programs. Family Programs typically occur Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, but do expand to other days during the summer months.
Conditional acceptance as a Family Programs volunteer is contingent upon successful completion of a Level 2 fingerprinting and background check.
To be considered, please complete our online volunteer application:
Applicants ages 16 and 17 will also need to submit a signed Parent/Guardian Consent form (which can be found on our website: www.ringling.org/volunteers) along with proof of age.
Applicants will be contacted by staff regarding next steps, which include an intake interview and participation in required orientation and training programs.
We'll work with your schedule.
