Doors Open Minneapolis

Doors Open Minneapolis is returning this year May 13 – 14!


Rethos will coordinate the event in partnership with Doors Open Minneapolis Founder Scott Mayer, the City of Minneapolis, the American Institute of Architects, and many more important local organizations.

With the event just a few months away, Rethos is eager to find volunteers to greet visitors at participating venues and provide a fun and engaging experience for all. Volunteer opportunities will look practically identical to 2019. Here are some important details to keep in mind:

  • Volunteer shifts are four hours long (9:30 – 1:30 & 1:30 – 5:30). You are allowed to sign up for more than one shift, and you’re encouraged to sign up with a friend!
  • You will receive a free Doors Open t-shirt and a “first priority” sticker that allows you to skip lines to visit other venues during the event!
  • You will be required to attend a 90-minute training to prep you for volunteering at Doors Open Minneapolis. There will be five different opportunities to attend this training.

You can sign up now at this HandsOn Twin Cities link. Once you’ve signed up for a volunteer slot, please register for one volunteer training at this Rethos link.

For a list and description of some available venues to volunteer at, check out the Venues 2023 webpage on the Doors Open Minneapolis website. Rethos is still rounding up venues, so more will join this list soon! Some venues have limited accessibility, so be sure to check the volunteer description on the Hands On Twin Cities website for the venue you’re interested in.
