VOLUNTEER

If you love Pittsburgh as much as we do, please consider volunteering Doors Open Pittsburgh 2020

  • You get to choose the neighborhood, the building, and the time of day you would like to volunteer.
  • All volunteer shifts will be 3 1/2 hours long….the time moves quickly, and in most cases, you will be paired with another volunteer.
  • Available shifts will include:  9:30a–1p and 12:45p–4:15p.
  • You will need to attend one 1- hour training session (you can choose from online or in-person).
  • After you register here, you will see a confirmation screen that provides you the link to self-select your volunteer assignment & training session.
  • If you do not see that, please email immediately to: info@DoorsOpenPgh.org
Greeters welcome our visitors at the entrance of a select building, check their tickets, keep count of guests, manage social distancing and mask-wearing.  Greeters will also answer any general questions our guest may have about the event.
Docents present information about the buildings to our guests.  This information will be provided to you by DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh.  We do encourage our docents to develop their own “style of presentation” based on the information provided.  Strong presentation skills and an ability to memorize 4-5 minutes of content are required.
Event Center, located at Market Square, this is the place where guests can purchase tickets, get answers to basic event questions, and pick up a copy of the event guide.  You will be responsible for assisting our guests in these ways.
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.
