Volunteer Positions

Volunteer Banner

DOCENTS 

CSPM Docents (tour guides) lead tours and educational programming for youth and adults. We are currently recruiting new docents for the fall. Training will take place in late August. Docents are required to commit for one year of service and volunteer at least 6 hours a month.

FRONT DESK GREETERS

Volunteers assist by staffing the front desk, greeting visitors, responding to visitor inquiries, and answering the phone.

MUSEUM STORE 

Volunteers assist in the museum store with point of sales, inventory, pricing, cleaning, helping guests, and merchandising. Store volunteers must commit to a weekly 3.5 hour shift.

RESEARCH & COLLECTIONS

Collection positions are very limited. Volunteers for this work must have a serious interest in the subject matter, and have a regular time commitment. Previous education in the subject is not required; however, the supervising archivist and research coordinator are willing to train the interested volunteer in doing the specialized research work.  Any opportunities will be posted online. 

YOUTH & FAMILY PROGRAMS

Program volunteers assist with a variety of hands-on activities for visiting school groups and families.

JUNIOR DOCENT PROGRAM 

The application window for the 2014 Junior Docent Program is now closed. Please check back in March of 2015 for more information about the program application. Learn more about the Junior Docent program here.
