  • Enjoy working with people, young and old, as well as maintain professionalism, especially when working with the public
  • Undergo a background check (CORI) if volunteering with our school groups

Types of Volunteering Opportunities:

  1. Regular Volunteers are needed for behind the scenes research and collections work.  These volunteers usually have a special interest in genealogy or experience in handling archival materials and/or artifacts. We also welcome museum studies, archive management, and library sciences students who would like to get hands on experience in the field. 
  2. Special Programs Volunteers are needed for our large annual events such as Strawberry Festival and Crafters’ Marketplace. We also need volunteers for evening and weekend programs throughout the year.
