Gallery Guides—also known as Docents—plan and lead welcoming and interactive guided tours in the UAMA galleries for K12, college, and adult groups. New trainees attend ongoing trainings, shadow and receive mentorship from experienced guides and museum staff, and complete at least one practice tour prior to leading groups on their own. We take on a limited number of new trainees during each recruitment period, so that we can meaningfully support all guides and not exceed current demand for guided tours.
Volunteer Gallery Guide/Docent: for community members with varying availability and experience levels. Required to become a UAMA Member and attend ongoing trainings.
UArizona Student Gallery Guide/Docent: for current undergrad and graduate UArizona students with varying availability and experience levels; all majors welcome. Required to attend ongoing trainings. Depending on level of participation in training and tours, students may be eligible to receive a financial award through their Bursar account.

Current UArizona students will be eligible for an award/stipend, depending on the amount of trainings and tours they participate in, based on a rate of $15/hour. Awards will be processed through the student’s Bursar’s Account at the end of the semester. Awards are subject to the student’s overall award/financial aid maximum limits.
