Volunteer Opportunities 

The Harn is currently recruiting responsible, inquisitive, focused and enthusiastic adults and students ages 18+ who are interested in fostering a sense of belonging among museum audiences. See available volunteer opportunities below.


Be a Museum University Student Educator (MUSE) 

The Museum University Student Educator program is for creative, energetic and dynamic university students, wanting to share their love of art with others. MUSEs are one-semester UF and SFC volunteers who create and present interactive and engaging experiences for museum visitors during Museum Nights, a monthly after-hours experience. All majors welcome. Meetings are Thursdays, 3:30 – 5 p.m. If you would like to be notified when this program resumes, please contact register@harn.ufl.edu.
