Great Architecture Inspires. Share the Inspiration.

Join us at the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust to share your passion for architecture through training, community, special programs and life-long learning. 

Volunteer in a variety of roles, including interpreting some of the most important works of America’s greatest architect for visitors from all over the world. We’ll equip you to share your passion for Wright architecture so you can lead inspiring tours, assist with workshops, help host special Trust events, and become part of a vibrant community of like-minded individuals. You’ll cultivate lasting friendships through social gatherings, group excursions and an active online community.

Take advantage of our rich continuing education programs especially designed to feed our volunteers’ desire for life-long learning and to deepen their knowledge of history, art and architecture. The Volunteers Share program offers a chance for volunteers to share ideas with each other from their personal areas of expertise, covering a wide variety of interesting topics. Other perks of earned memberships include free tours at all Trust sites, expert lectures, and discounts at our museum shops and online store.
