If you love showing off Pittsburgh’s rich history, iconic buildings, and remarkable neighborhoods as much as we do, please consider volunteering. Right now, we are planning three open-house style walking tours for 2021:
- Homestead on June 26
- The Strip District on July 31
- Annual Event on October 2.
If you are interested in being a volunteer for DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh, please sign up to volunteer now. (This link will send you to our database partner, Constant Contact).
Six weeks prior to any tour you expressed interest in, we will contact you so that you can select your training date and volunteer assignment.
Your Options for Volunteer Assignments
Greeters welcome our visitors at the entrance of a select building, check their tickets, keep count of guests, manage social distancing and mask-wearing.
Docents present information about the buildings to our guests. This information will be provided to you by DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh. Strong presentation skills and an ability to memorize 4-5 minutes of content are required.
Substitutes are assigned a specific role/task a few days before the event. You would be a substitute for another volunteer who has cancelled or be called upon to help in some other way during the event. You would NOT be called upon to be a docent.
