Our number one need is for Docents who can give tours and help run the Museum. There is some training involved, and our greatest need is for people who can work a 3.5 hour shift (or the whole day) on a consistent schedule. If you can't, and instead would like to work as an substitute, that is a need too. So don't be shy, our Museum Docents bring history to life.
Here are some of our greatest Volunteer needs.
Help With Exhibits & Processing of Artifacts
Volunteers have put together whole exhibits under the direction of our curator, and have also helped with the processing and storage of the many artifacts we receive from the community.
Help With the School On-Site Program
If you love kids, you will want to help with this activity. When school groups visit in the fall and spring, there is a need for many volunteers to help work the various stations set up for them. Be prepared for a high energy experience, because the kids love coming to Silver Reef, and all the fun learning activities in store for them here.
Grounds, Garden, & Building Upkeep
With 17 plus acres, three buildings, and two formal gardens, maintenance and updating are constant needs, and it takes many hours of volunteer time to meet them all. Great exercise, friendly people, and the views while you are working, never end.
Oftentimes with some of the bigger events like Ghost Nights, it is all hands on deck, with all volunteers being asked to help, no mater what their areas of interest are. Also, the lecture series and other events in the Cosmopolitan have sporadic needs for a volunteer to set things up for the event. Volunteering for special events is a great way for those who don't have the time or schedule for regular commitments, to still help whenever they can.
Help With Marketing & Promotion
Always a need for help here, with the need going from the distribution of flyers and brochures, to more involved activities and assignments.
