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 24 from 2 – 3:30 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 greeters; weddings and special events; security and shuttle drivers; tour guides for children; photography; and assistance with clerical, office and special projects as well as the Café, Gift Shop and Plant Shop.
To R.S.V.P. for the Job Fair or to learn more about volunteer opportunities at Bok Tower Gardens, contact Rachel Henderson at (863) 734-1211.
