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, to 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 from which you can choose:
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.
All information provided on the Volunteer Application Form is confidential. Mail, drop off or email your completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Next, we will schedule a time for you to come in and meet with the Museum Volunteers Coordinator. This meeting helps us better understand your interests, gauge you skill set and those tasks in which you would be 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 with which you are not familiar with.
