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”.
