Volunteer at Fleisher

Every year, Fleisher volunteers and interns contribute thousands of hours in support of our art education and exhibition programs.

Internships may be arranged for credit with a college or university. These internships occasionally offer a stipend payable by the college or university. Fleisher does not offer any paid internships. Unpaid internships may be arranged for personal enrichment and are considered on a rolling basis.

Interested in getting involved? See below for current opportunities and e-mail us at info@fleisher.org for more information.
