The Corps of Volunteers is composed of community-minded adults, men and women, who wish to support the programs of the Victoria Symphony. These volunteers assist in various ways, but for education programs, volunteers can accompany and work with the Traveling Instrument Petting Zoo to various school campuses throughout the school year. An interest and desire to work with elementary-age children is a must for education volunteers. 

The VSO Director of Education supervises and directs all volunteers at each campus. Volunteers agree to attend a training session with the Director of Education prior to their involvement with petting zoo visits on school campuses. All volunteers will undergo a background check, at VSO expense, and shall provide their own transportation to schools.
