March Volunteer Opportunities!

Volunteers play a vital role in the heart and soul of our programs, and generous individuals in our communities and beyond - like you - who assist in Galería’s ongoing calendar of events, gallery production, and administrative assistance make a world of difference.

By joining us as a volunteer, you get to experience the organization from both a free and exciting behind-the-scenes viewpoint, as well as interact with a community of arts appreciators!

If you are interested in volunteering at Galería, please email with what opportunity interests you, subject line “I want to volunteer at ____________” (name of opportunity). Volunteers receive an orientation and walk-through of all gallery venues on their first day of volunteering.


#UndocuJoy: Unfathomable Strength Gallery Attendant

Lodation: Galería de la Raza 2857 24th St. San Francisco, CA 94110

Wednesday - Saturdays, February 14 - May 12 

Volunteer Shift, 12:00 - 6:00pm


#UndocuJoy is a celebratory exhibition honoring the day-to-day spirit, passion, intelligence and resilience embodied by undocumented communities. With this group exhibition, we challenge the media’s collective archetype of undocumented people, which often conjures images of fear, despair and villains.

 During these trying times when the national immigration policy is at a peak, #UndocuJoy is a showcase of artists whose collective imagination document the joy and resilience exemplified in everyday life, while also chronicling our people as entrepreneurs, innovators, artists and leaders. #UndocuJoy is a love letter to those most affected by today’s policies (in this case, all of the artists) and an invitation for others to join our resistance.

Role: Gallery attendant will engage with visitors on the issues surrounding this exhibition as well as provide staff support when needed.

Hocicona (oh-see-ko-na)
noun, adjective: big mouth, loud-mouth (who talks too much or says things which should not be said); refers to the big snout of an animal; a term used to negatively label womxn who dare to speak up for themselves
Producing Lead Artist Sarita Ocón aims to reclaim this term and unapologetically create space for our collective of artists to live hella loud and proud, build creative tools, plant seeds of creative visions, and begin devising new works that reflect their experiences and communities.
