After a brief training session and a seasonal exhibition orientation that includes refreshments and a special tour, volunteers are ready to interact with visitors of all ages and for a variety of public services for the museum. TAM Volunteers are the first point of contact for museum visitors and public at the information/reception desk. They help field a variety of inquires and provide information about the exhibitions, programs, and services. They ensure that attendance to the museum is tracked and that visitors sign in and adhere to museum policies. Volunteers are honored yearly by the City of Torrance and TAM Volunteers are encouraged to attend special field trips and mixer events.
As a municipal (government run) museum, TAM requires all potential volunteers to:
1) Be fingerprinted for a background check. 2) Volunteer a minimum of 6 hours a month. 3) Attend all orientation and training sessions as scheduled. 4) Be at least 18 years of age.

|How you help||There are many ways the members and those wishing to become members of TAMA can help advance the efforts of the Torrance Art Museum! Helping us spread the word about our group as well as the exhibitions at the museum by word of mouth, posting on social media, volunteering to sit at the desk at the TAM or by advocating for the museum at the City Council meetings are all ways that will help ensure the TAM continues to thrive in the city.|
|About us||In November of 2013 a group of interested volunteers came together to discuss the possibility of forming an organization to support the artistic, educational and community-building efforts of the Torrance Art Museum (TAM). After several meetings and much hard work this group became a reality.|
