Here are a number of ways you can support Villa Finale

Volunteering is fun and rewarding! Villa Finale offers a variety of Volunteer Staff positions.

Guide: Lead regular and special guided tours for visitors of all ages. Guides are required to complete and pass guide training.
Tour Assistants: Follow Guide-led tours of Villa Finale to provide extra security and assist guests with disabilities.

Tour Staff for self-guided tours: Assist visitors and answer questions as they tour Villa Finale’s first floor on their own.

Grounds: Assist Buildings and Grounds Manager with the general care and maintenance of gardens and buildings.

Collections: Help out our Manager of Collections and Interpretation with the cleaning and care of the house and collections. Collections volunteers must complete full guide training and work as Tour Staff before they may work as collections volunteers.

Requirements:

  • All Volunteer Staff must attend an annual Safety and Security Overview. This is mandatory for all Volunteer Staff.
  • Villa Finale will host special Continuing Education sessions throughout the year which may be mandatory for some volunteer positions.
