Part maker, part dreamer, part storyteller; start your volunteer career today with Medalta in the Historic Clay District.

In its heyday this historic industrial site was once home to a staff of 300 people working in sweltering and dusty conditions to deliver clay products to people all over the world. Today conditions have improved dramatically, but one unifying theme remains a constant – the tight knit team that continues to grow and evolve this site into the community centre it is today.

Why Volunteer with Medalta?

Volunteering supports Medalta and promotes hands-on experiences, artistic expression, and educational innovation. Volunteers contribute to the community while gaining additional experience and new skills. Volunteers get to know each other at gatherings and special events, and by sharing their ideas and experiences. By engaging in the wide variety of volunteer opportunities possible at the museum, volunteers gain technical knowledge, learn how to work with the public, develop teaching skills, and refine work habits and management techniques. You may also choose to enhance your resume by listing the experience and skills you’ve gained through volunteer work at Medalta.
