Education Intern

The Education Intern gains hands-on experience in learning various methods of facilitating discussion about contemporary art and artists’ practices; designing engaging, appropriate, and relevant activities for visitors of all ages; developing activities that reinforce classroom curriculum and relate to Museum exhibitions; collaborating with other community organizations to create engaging programming; and researching and drafting interpretive materials for different exhibits.

Successful candidates should be self-starters with an eye for detail; strong oral, writing, and research skills; an enthusiasm for public speaking; and strong customer service skills. They should be able to learn quickly and be confident in their abilities to take on trial-by-fire challenges. Preference is given to candidates with museum/art education experience.

Schedule: 30-hours per week, schedule is flexible based on mutual convenience.

Compensation: Interns will be paid an hourly rate of $13.18.


Whether behind the scenes or in the Museum galleries, volunteers are integral to the success of BMAC. Volunteer hours are flexible, and training is provided when necessary. If you are interested in any of the opportunities described below, please contact Chelsea Osborne at 802-257-0124, ext. 101 or office@brattleboromuseum.org.

Gallery Greeters/Monitors play a vital role in shaping the visitor’s experience of BMAC. Gallery greeters work regular or occasional shifts when BMAC is open to the public. Greeters work at the front desk, where they welcome visitors and handle admission, gift shop sales, and general inquiries. This is a great opportunity for a friendly, responsible “people-person.” 

Docents are a key part of our education program. They work closely with the Education Curator to present guided tours and activities for students.

Event volunteers help ensure the success of BMAC’s many events, ranging from artist talks and concerts to domino topplings and dinner parties. Event volunteers assist with set up, clean up, decorations, food service, crowd management, artwork security, and much more.

Production volunteers assist with the installation and de-installation of exhibits, often working closely with artists and curators. Experience with art installation, painting, carpentry, and power tools is helpful.

Office volunteers work behind-the-scenes with BMAC’s administrative staff, helping with filing, mailings, organizing the BMAC archives, and much more. Computer skills are a plus!
