Volunteers serve as mentors for Monona Terrace programs, and tour guides.

Monona Terrace is truly the product of our community.  It was approved and built with public support, and proudly serves as a popular community gathering place for events and celebrations.  This simply would not be the case without our crew of dedicated volunteers and docents who logged in over 1,100 hours last year alone!  Join our volunteer team and together we can ensure the ongoing success of Frank Lloyd Wright’s “dream civic center”.

Here's what some of our most recent interns had to say:

"Being a Community Relations intern for Monona Terrace was a great way to finish off my college career. It gave me the opportunity to explore a new and local work environment while giving me the chance to learn tasks in different fields of work that ranged from planning community events to writing an award application. Getting to be an intern here gives you a chance to discover work that involves event planning, social media marketing and public relations all in one place. You get the freedom to be creative in some areas while having set structure for others, which is a great balance for someone new to this type of work setting. I would recommend this internship to anyone interested getting involved with the community through any of these areas of interest."

"My internship at Monona Terrace was an engaging learning experience. Not only are the people in the Community Relations Department talented, friendly, and motivating, they also trust their interns with a lot of responsibility. While interning, I worked on projects in PR, social media, event planning, and volunteer coordination.  For me, one of the most rewarding aspects as an intern at Monona Terrace is that I always felt like an essential part of the team."
