The Museum of Tolerance offers three distinct volunteer programs for people of different ages, with many different interests, skills and abilities:
Qualities of a MOT Volunteer:
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, which is offered in October and in February 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 8 week formal Volunteer Orientation Training, scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1:00-4:30pm, from October 27th until December 17th, 2015, includes:
The MOT Independent Volunteer Training (IVT) Program is designed to offer greater flexibility for prospective volunteers who are unable to attend the formal classes, due to school or work schedule conflicts.
The MOT also offers update exhibit training and skills workshops for all Volunteers throughout the year.
