Media, Music, & The Arts Opportunities


Art Volunteer Opportunity with VisArts: VisArts, in Rockville Town Square, is a nonprofit art center and an approved source of SSL Hours in Montgomery County.  They are currently looking for new volunteers for our gallery program.

Their volunteer program is an essential part of their organization. They are responsible for the safety of the artwork they put on display. Thus, they cannot open their galleries unless they have volunteers available to remind visitors of the rules and inform them of any problems that arise. Volunteers also help them to educate the public about the art in the galleries, as well as VisArts’ other programs in the community.

Volunteering at VisArts is a great opportunity for students. They can learn responsibility and communication skills, and see first-hand how an art gallery is run. They especially welcome students with an interest in art: their regular volunteers get to meet the artists and learn about ways to be involved in the art world.
