Volunteer at the Gardens! Learn more at Job Fair Jan. 16

Ready to learn new skills, meet new people, and have fun? Join the staff of Bok Tower Gardens at its annual Volunteer Job Fair on Friday, January 16 at 2 p.m.

Information will be available from a variety of Gardens’ departments that offer volunteer opportunities. Once a volunteer donates 50 hours of service or more, they earn a tour of the Singing Tower, membership to the Gardens, and numerous other benefits.

“This is a great opportunity for individuals of all ages to learn new things, make wonderful friends, and have a rewarding experience all while having fun,” explains Visitor Services Manager Rachel Henderson.

Garden guides will be trained to lead daily tours of the historic Olmsted gardens and docents are needed to conduct tours of Pinewood Estate, a 20-room Mediterranean-style mansion on Gardens property. Other volunteer opportunities include: Information Desk hosts; weddings and special events; shuttle drivers; tour guides for children; and assistance with clerical, office and special projects, Café, Gift Shop, Plant Shop, and many more.
