Volunteering at the museum is a great way to be involved in the community and to help us out. Volunteers make things happen and are the backbone of our organization. There are plenty of activities that could fit your interests and schedule. We provide opportunities for the following:
- Internship Opportunities
- Service Learning Hours for High School Students
- Community Service Hours
Our docents help run the programs for class tours. They lead groups of student in discovery in the museum, at the adobe and also lead in student hands-on activities.
We presently have class tours at the Museum of Local History and at the Rancho Higuera Historical Park.
Our volunteers keep the doors open. We need your help to greet visitors, to orient them to the museum and to take care of various duties such as filing, organizing, sales, etc.
Duties may include working in cataloguing, exhibits, or researching information.
If you like to take pictures we need someone to photograph items in the collection.
