Become a tour guide

There are plenty of opportunities for you to have fun volunteering at the museum, whatever your skills might be! We always have things you can do, whatever your skills might be. One example is that we can train you to be a tour guide. You will learn to become skillful at weaving the many stories we share while guiding visitors through the artifacts in the exhibits.

Volunteer from your home

You can also volunteer from home, even if you live in another part of the world. For example, if you are a student who is looking for opportunities for service hours, we could use your talents with web development, creating slideshows or videos, recording audio lectures or helping us with online social networking.

Offer your professional skills

If you have specialized skills in business or community development, team management, marketing, fundraising, or have a background as a writer or media professional, we could certainly benefit from your insight and assistance. We strive to bring our work to a professional level in all we do. This includes networking with other museums and service organizations, and offering the Museum’s resources as an instructional resource to local colleges. We would welcome your services!

Help us develop our exhibits

We invite you to join our research and exhibit design team. We create our tour narratives by researching primary sources as much as possible, then bring out the interplay between the experience of spiritually-based social justice movements, and the history of the world and the local region.

Help us work with college, high school & middle school students

We have students and student groups visiting us regularly. Educational Institutions value the objective nature of our exhibits with their reliance on primary historical sources. This, combined with the fact that we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has made us a trusted source. This is a role that we are diligently working to expand. Your assistance in working with our visiting students is most deeply appreciated!

Volunteer as an artist

If you are an artist who would like to create and donate artwork, we’d be happy to explore the possibility with you. We would especially be interested in art that complements an exhibit theme. Please send us a picture of some of your previous work to our Museum Director Zabine Van Ness at zabine123@hotmail.com.
