As “The Face of The Ringling,” volunteers perform a variety of functions. These are some of the areas where volunteers serve. Volunteer opportunities in each of these areas vary throughout the year and vacancies are filled as they become available. Please contact Volunteer Services Department for current openings.
This important work brings volunteers together with professional staff in various departments to provide behind-the-scenes support for programs and events.
Gardens and Grounds Volunteers
For those who enjoy being outdoors year-round and working during early morning hours, this is an opportunity to assist staff in maintaining The Ringling's beautiful Bayfront Gardens.
Historic Asolo Theater Ushers
In addition to greeting patrons, taking tickets and directing people to their seats, ushers provide support in emergencies and set examples of good theater etiquette during matinees and evening performances year-round.
Marketing Department Volunteers
These volunteers are specially trained to aide our Marketing Department by escorting members of the media or representing The Ringling at a variety of public events.
Museum Store Assistants
Store Assistants work alongside staff, restocking and wrapping merchandise and helping visitors select purchases.
Offering visitors a warm welcome and providing them with general information about tours, special events, and membership is the important contribution of these volunteers.
Special Events Assistants
Volunteers who are already committed to serving The Ringling in other assignments occasionally assist with functions related to the preparation and execution of special events on the estate.
Tram Drivers help visitors navigate their way around the Museum grounds, providing free transportation, seven days per week. You must have a valid driver's license and participate in annual safety training.
