The Military Heritage Museum depends on volunteers daily. Our volunteers have a variety of responsibilities from monitoring and interacting with visitors in the exhibit galleries and program areas, promoting the museum’s Membership program, assisting in the gift shop and café, providing information at the main lobby welcome center, and more! There are two volunteer categories – Museum Department Volunteers and Special Programs Volunteers for you to choose from:
• Museum Daily Operations Volunteers are typically assigned a weekly shift(s) and assist in a functional area during the hours the Museum’s exhibit galleries are open. These functional areas include: Museum Galleries, Main Lobby Welcome Center, Gift Shop and Café, Future Force Academy and Library.
• Special Programs Volunteers assist in several program areas that are not necessary operating the same hours each week. These include: Future Force Academy, library activities, educational programs, theater programs, Museum coordinated ceremonies, artifact and collections preservation, exhibit design, facilities maintenance, and fundraising events.
All information provided is confidential. Mail, drop off or email info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Next, we will schedule a time for you to come in and meet with the Museum Volunteer Coordinator. This meeting helps us better understand your interests, gauge you skill set and what tasks you are interested in helping with. This is also an opportunity for you to ask us questions.
Finally, after the meeting, we will add you to the volunteer schedule. Depending on your role, we are happy to work with you to find a schedule that suits your needs. We will provide training on tasks you are unfamiliar with.
