The MOT offers three distinct volunteer programs for people of different ages, with many different interests, skills and abilities:
| Qualities of a MOT Volunteer:
|MOT Volunteer Orientation Training|
Volunteer Applications are accepted throughout the year. Prospective candidates must participate in a personal interview, followed by reference checks. If accepted to our Volunteer Program, prospective volunteers are invited to attend the formal MOT Volunteer Orientation Training or to begin our Independent Volunteer Training Program.
Volunteer training is followed by a flexible Apprenticeship period designed to allow Volunteers to become comfortable with the MOT, its exhibits and the various Volunteer opportunities, and to become certified before beginning active volunteer service.
The eight-week formal Volunteer Orientation Training includes:
|MOT Independent Volunteer Training (IVT) Program|
|The MOT Independent Volunteer Training Program (IVT) is designed to offer greater flexibility for prospective volunteers who are unable to attend the formal classes, due to school or work schedule conflicts. Prospective volunteers commit to a regular day and time each week that works with their schedule to conduct their training.
The Museum is Closed Saturdays and Jewish Holidays. During the months of November - March, the MOT will close at 3:30pm on Fridays. Last entrance is 1:00pm.
