Current Opportunities

MUSEUM EDUCATORS

The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum is currently recruiting energetic individuals to serve as volunteer Museum Educators. We are looking for volunteers that:

  • Love history
  • Want to give back to their community
  • Enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds
  • Are excited to learn new things and share their knowledge with others
  • Can easily adapt and enjoy a fast paced environment
  • Are flexible and open to feedback as they learn new things

Volunteers can choose to train and support our weekly school programs and/or our adult tour offerings. Volunteers must commit to a minimum of four months of service. Generally, volunteers serve one to two times per week. Shifts are anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours.

Our spring 2019 training is scheduled for Tuesday, January 8 through Friday, January 11. New volunteers are required to attend an information session on Tuesday, January 8 at 9am. You can then sign up for required training throughout the rest of the day and week.

If interested please contact us to set-up an interview prior to the January training. All CSPM Volunteers are required to interview, attend required training, and submit for a background check. When placing new volunteers the museum considers interests, skills, availability and determines if the role is the best fit for the prospective volunteer and vice versa.

Interested volunteers should contact Meg Poole, Program Coordinator, to set up an interview. Call 719-385-5631 or email mpoole@springsgov.com
