Moody volunteers have the opportunity to participate in the life of a vibrant new arts organization and to contribute valuable visitor services to Rice University.

Qualified candidates should possess a love and appreciation of the arts, a flexible attitude for dealing effectively with the public, and an understanding that reliability is critical.

To volunteer at the Moody, candidates must make a one-year commitment and be available for two to four shifts each month.
