**Important Update Regarding the DAI Volunteer Program**
The health and safety of our community is our top priority. As a result, volunteer opportunities for 2020-2021 have been suspended in response to concerns related to COVID-19. Please check back for status updates.

The Dayton Art Institute’s volunteers are committed to enriching lives and serving the community by creating meaningful experiences with art. With less than 100 employees and nearly 500 volunteers, the DAI volunteers are an essential resource to this organization. Day after day, our volunteers support willingly, as individuals, couples or in a group, to ensure the museum’s success. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities with a minimum age limit of 15.

Volunteer positions consist of:

  • High School Summer Volunteers – Click Here for more information
  • Auditorium Support (House Captain, Ticket Scanners & Ushers)
  • Bartenders
  • Department Support
  • The Lange Family Experiencenter
  • Building Rental Support
  • Greeters

  • Program and Event Support
  • Team Captains
  • Summer Camp
  • Tech Volunteer

Commitment

A volunteer commitment may be temporary or long-term.  Volunteers making a long-term commitment are encouraged, but not required, to become museum members and complete a minimum of 25 hours annually.

We Offer Three Volunteer Categories

Occasional: For an annual special event such as Oktoberfest, Art Ball, or special projects.
Frequent:
 Seasonal special events, theatre seasons or event series (parties, jazz, etc.).
Regular:
 Monthly or weekly schedules at a regular time for events and museum support.

Regardless of the time and commitment you are able to provide, what you can contribute is honored and greatly appreciated. We value any time you can give to ensure our continued success.

The DAI is not accepting volunteer applications at this time.
