YOUTH Opportunities

Summer Art Camp Volunteer

We’re looking for volunteers:

  • 15 years of age or older
  • Enthusiastic, early-rising
  • Love kids, and love art!
  • This placement is reserved for high-school aged youth

Make new friendships, learn new skills, and join us this summer!

We recruit over 200 high-school aged youth volunteers each summer for our art camp – our most popular placement of the year!

Summer art camp volunteers are the “best friends” of camp. Your role is to help supervise and support our young campers, and also help prepare art supplies, provide one-one-one art-making assistance, and play games/eat lunch with your group. Volunteers work together in teams of 3-4 volunteers, to assist paid art camp staff and instructors.

Commitment: This is a two-week placement (70 hours). Volunteers must be available for one full, two-week session of camp (Monday – Friday, 8:15am – 4:15pm). Camp sessions run throughout July and August, and volunteers can choose their session. (*There is a one-week volunteer session (35 hours) at the end of August – if you can only join us for one week, please choose Session 5)

Volunteer Benefits: Volunteers receive free admission to the AGO (anytime!), tickets for friends and family to visit, and free and discounted admission/deals to museums/galleries and cultural attractions all across Toronto – like the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium, and more!

Application Deadline: Friday, June 7
