The Cantor depends on a committed group of dedicated member volunteers to fill a variety of positions and to participate in a wide range of activities and events vital to the successful operation of the Cantor. Training is available. To get involved, review the many volunteer opportunities.

Docents provide interactive tours of the Cantor Arts Center, the Rodin collection, special exhibitions, and art on the Stanford campus. Learn more about docent training.

Visitor Services
Volunteers staff the information desks in the museum. These volunteers are the front line of service at the Cantor; they greet visitors and provide information about the Cantor as well as about exhibitions, programs and events. The Cantor depends upon the visitor service volunteers to facilitate a positive visitor experience. Visitor service volunteers commit to a minimum one year assignment with weekly participation and are a minimum age of 18 years old.
