There are so many opportunities to be involved with the work we do here. 


Open Positions

Teaching Artist (PT)

Alice Austen House is looking for a couple of teaching artists to join its team of educators. Our TAs go into Staten Island public schools to deliver a curriculum that uses Alice’s fantastic photography as an entry point to such subjects as immigration (contemporary and historical), women’s history, and portraiture.

This is a floating position that requires a flexible schedule adaptable to the school day.

It is a good opportunity for someone passionate about photography. It is not necessary to have a Masters degree. It is a great way to become knowledgeable about a respected, innovative contemporary photography museum. Four years ago, we became a national site of LGBTQ history. 

To apply, please send a letter of interest and your resume to Anna Van Lenten: 



Internships and Volunteer Work

Volunteers and interns are a truly important part of our organization, helping in our Victorian gardens, assisting with annual clean up events as well as all of our community programs and research. Volunteers form long-lasting bonds with the work and history of the museum, often joining our team of staff and importantly representing our New York communities.

If you are interested in becoming more involved or you are a student who would like to intern or gain volunteer experience please fill out this form and we will contact you.


Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers!
