Volunteer

If you love Pittsburgh as much as we do, then show the love by volunteering for Doors Open Pittsburgh in 2020!

(Existing volunteers do not need to re-register)

Volunteer Roles include:

Greeters – you will greet people at the entrance of a select building, check their tickets and keep count of visitors.

Docent – you will present information about the buildings to our visitors.  This information will be provided to you by Doors Open Pittsburgh, although we do encourage our Docents to develop their own “script” based on the information provided.

Event Center – based in Market Square, the DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh Event Center will be the palace where visitors can purchase tickets, get answer to basic event questions and pick up a copy of the Event Guide; you would be responsible for assisting with these tasks.

Zone Coordinator - you will be the primary point of contact for the volunteers at a handful of buildings.

Floater - you would be assigned a specific role/task a few days before the event, either to substitute for someone who has cancelled, or to help out in some other way during the event.  You would NOT be called upon to be a Docent.

 As a Volunteer, please know:

  • All volunteer shifts will be 3 ½ hours long…the time moves quickly, and in most cases, you will be paired with another person.
  • Available shifts will include:  9:30a-1p and 1p-4:30p.
  • You get to choose what time of day and what building you would like to volunteer!
