Volunteer Opportunities

The Museum of Chinese in America is looking for dedicated and committed volunteers!

MOCA volunteers are involved in all aspects of museum life. Volunteer opportunities range from ushering at programs and gallery events, working with families and children, photographing programs and fundraising dinners, planning events with us, or building MOCA’s oral history collections. As a volunteer, you’ll learn firsthand from stories, images, and objects that tell about the past and you'll gain rich, well-rounded experience in arts and cultural work.


Some volunteer assignments are ongoing, while others proceed on an event or project-by-project basis.
