Volunteers are an important part of the Collier County Museums: they help to enhance the quality of visits for our guests and provide the creativity and manpower needed to plan and implement our programs and special activities.

As a museum volunteer, you may be able to assist with our educational workshops and lectures, students' programs, group tours, the gift shop, and an ever-changing schedule of special events. Volunteers also assist with historical research and serve as our official guides at the Old Florida Festival and other annual events.

Collectively, this special group of individuals contribute thousands of hours of service to the Collier County Museums each year.

Our ongoing volunteer needs include:

  • Special-event assistants
  • Public speakers
  • Translators
  • Gardeners
  • Greeters and gift store clerks
  • Fundraising and membership assistants
  • Docents
  • Office assistants

We'll match your skills and interests to a specific volunteer position or help train you to branch out into new areas. Either way, you'll have the full support and appreciation of the museum and our staff to make your time as a volunteer a fulfilling and rewarding experience.

There are real personal satisfactions in working with friends who share your interest, skills and passion for educating others about our history. If you can spare a few hours of your time a week to help as a volunteer, we'd love to hear from you!
