More about Friends of Heublein Tower Volunteers:


A Friend of Heublein Tower volunteer simply requires a passion for the mission, friendly attitude and flexibility. Most roles require physical abilities of standing for long periods of time, bending, lifting and walking. However, we do have roles with less physical needs. FOHT volunteers must abide by instructions of staff at all times and are expected to remain respectful and courteous at all times.

Private drive access:

FOHT sponsors, vendors and volunteers must respect the strict protocol of no road access to Heublein Tower. In cooperation with the DEEP, there are exceptions made two times a year for our signature events. Road access will be granted only to all vetted and registered event volunteers for only the day and hours of the event. The gate is monitored by DEEP staff and during any events, a gate keeper is on duty with an approved vehicle list. No exceptions will be made. Road access for individual volunteers on specific shift assignments is arranged through your supervisor accordingly.
