ABOUT TALIESIN PRESERVATION

As stewards of the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, our dual mission is to preserve the cultural, built, and natural environments that comprise the Taliesin property and to conduct educational and cultural programs that provide a greater understanding of his architecture and ideas. We are different from other historic sites because we are not satisfied with just being a museum. We want the estate to stay filled with life.

There is an energy here that captures and engages people. And the staff, without exception, are creative people who care passionately about their work and are full of ideas. We are a small organization and, as such, we offer a lot of flexibility and opportunity for people to develop within their areas of interest--and we are invested in their success!

VOLUNTEERING AS A PRESERVATION ASSISTANT

As a Preservation Assistant, you will be part of a team that assists with specific preservation and stabilization projects. This position is highly flexible but volunteers must possess the necessary skills to do the work safely and with limited supervision.

It is an opportunity to work in a community that embraces the principles of Frank Lloyd Wright's vision through the integration of farming, gardening, and cooking as a celebration of a beautiful way of living.

QUALIFICATIONS FOR A SPECIAL EVENT AMBASSADOR

  • Volunteers must already possess the skills necessary for the project they commit to. Generally this will be considered 3-5 years of work related experience. In some specialized cases, more experience may be necessary. If your skills come from a hobby, providing a portfolio of your work is required;
  • Possession of work tools is a plus;
  • Thorough working knowledge of construction standards, methods, and materials; and
  • Ability to take direction and work independently.

Experience is a must but we are happy to train willing hands in the specifics of work on the estate. Do you love working with your hands? Does the idea of these unique buildings surviving another hundred years set your heart aflutter? If so, you might just be the perfect volunteer for these Preservation Assistant positions!
