Without our volunteers, we would be history! Each year, the museum relies on over 100 volunteers and interns to support our mission to build a lasting connection to the Pikes Peak region by preserving and sharing our cultural history. We are looking for volunteers that share our values, want to give back to their community, and are willing to learn and grow.
We are currently recruiting Education Volunteers (to lead stations for our 2nd-5th grade school programs) and Customer Service Volunteers (to assist at the front desk OR in the Museum Store). Please note that these positions require excellent customer service skills, a willingness to learn and grow, and a comfort level with public speaking and working with people. We are also looking for new members to join our community committees – programs, finance, and fundraising.
Please complete the volunteer application at the bottom of this page.
The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum is looking for enthusiastic volunteers with excellent customer service skills to support our front desk and museum store. Customer Service Volunteers typically commit to one 3.5 hour shift each week.
- Front desk volunteers set the tone for the visitor’s experience with a welcoming and informative greeting. You will be trained how to greet visitors, utilize the computer to perform a variety of basic functions, answer calls, and how to share information about the museum with guests. You will also support the staff in other projects as needed.
- Store volunteers create a warm and welcoming retail experience for museum visitors. You will be trained how to utilize the store’s point-of-sales system and how to share information about merchandise with guests. You will also support the Store Manager in other projects as needed.
