You Don’t Need to be an Architecture Expert to Volunteer at the Tour!

Being a volunteer is a rewarding experience and offers an opportunity to engage with the design profession, expand your professional network, see the latest design trends, and make an impact in helping AIA Minnesota demonstrate the value of architects and the built environment. You don’t need to know anything about architecture in order to help!

Volunteers are needed to greet guests, check and sell tickets, and answer general questions at the entrance to each tour home. Shifts are four hours; morning and afternoon slots are available on Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18:

9:30 am  – 1:45 pm
1:15 – 5:30 pm

A 30-minute training session will tell you everything you need to know before your shift. Live orientation sessions will be offered during the week prior to the tour, or watch the orientation webinar from home.

Volunteers receive FREE access to the tour all weekend plus a $10 Target gift card (to be mailed following tour weekend for those who fulfill their shifts).
