Volunteer at the Getty Center or the Getty Villa

We are not currently accepting applications for the Getty Volunteer Program, but we always welcome questions from prospective volunteers. Please contact us at volunteer@getty.edu.

Do you love art, helping people, and working in a beautiful, stimulating environment? Are you looking for new pursuits? Do you have four hours to spare every week or two? If so, why not consider becoming a volunteer at the Getty Center in Los Angeles or the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades?

As a Visitor Services volunteer, you'll greet Getty visitors; answer their questions about the Getty Center or Getty Villa; assist with special events and projects; and sometimes help out in offices throughout the Getty.

Ages 18 and up welcome. Fluency in more than one language helpful but not required; no previous arts experience necessary. Ongoing training is provided. Weekday, weekend, and evening shifts are available and can accommodate a variety of schedules.


The J. Paul Getty Trust is an equal-opportunity employer.
