Visitors of all ages enjoy the innovative architecture and arts programming at the Schindler House. MAK Center docents and volunteers help make the visitor experience informative and memorable. In appreciation of their service, docents and volunteers receive free admission to the Schindler House and to certain MAK Center events; discounts in the MAK Center Bookstore; and regular field trips that include exclusive tours of rarely seen architectural sites in and around Los Angeles.
Docents go through an education and training program, and after passing the test, work one shift per month providing tours of the Schindler House and MAK Center exhibitions. At times, additional assistance may be requested for weekday tours or for special events.
For more information on the Docent Program, contact Docent Coordinator Angelica Fuentes at (323) 651-1510 x11 or [email protected]. Study materials and a brief training course are provided.
The MAK Center gladly accepts the help of volunteers for events and special projects. Volunteering is a great opportunity to contribute to the preservation of a historic landmark as well as gain experience at a non-profit center for art and architecture with varied programming and broad outreach. Students majoring in art, architecture and art history may especially benefit, but anyone interested is welcome.
For more information on volunteer opportunities, contact Program Director Adam Peña at (323) 651-1510 x10 or [email protected]
