Now Seeking

Here volunteers interact with visitors by assisting them find a specific exhibit or aircraft or where the attractions or Cafes are located. These Gallery Monitors have the amazing opportunity to interact with visitors first-hand to include many veterans who have very exciting and unique stories to share. The biggest need for this group of volunteers is currently on weekends. The other area of great need is with our expanding educational needs of the Museum. Our Education Division is quickly growing their programming and events and they are looking for outgoing people who love to share their passion for learning with children and adults of all ages.
