Volunteer & Internship

The Hispanic Society offers volunteer opportunities to qualified applicants in the Museum Department and Education Department. The volunteer program works to match the Hispanic Society’s needs with the skills of qualified candidates.

Applications are accepted at all times. Staff members of the various departments will directly contact and interview prospective volunteers. Qualified candidates should possess a love and appreciation of Hispanic art, literature, and cultures, a flexible attitude for dealing effectively with the public, proficiency with computers, and an understanding that reliability is critical. Candidates with a background in art, art history, museum education, and knowledge of Spanish are preferred.


The Hispanic Society offers full-time and part-time internship positions to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a career in the art world. No stipends are available for interns; however, some universities will grant class credit for the experience (please enquire at your school for the requirements).

Internships at the Hispanic Society provide students with the opportunity to explore a variety of areas of interests, including education, public programs, curatorial support, exhibition planning, marketing, and development. The preferred candidate will have a strong interest in Hispanic arts and culture and museum work.

To apply, please send a resume and two letters of recommendation to museum@hispanicsociety.org.
