The Campbell House Museum depends on dedicated, enthusiastic volunteers to carry out daily operations and special programs. The work of volunteers is vital to the museum’s operations. The Museum ALWAYS has a need for volunteers in the following areas:
• Docents provide guided tours to Museum visitors. Comprehensive training is provided.
• Museum Store Volunteers staff the Museum Store and help visitors with purchases. Training is provided.
• Garden Volunteers assist the Museum staff in planting and maintaining the Museum’s grounds and gardens.
• Office Volunteers assist the Museum staff with office tasks such as working with the archives.
Docents and Museum Store volunteers are scheduled when the Museum is open to the public. Most Docents and Museum Store volunteers work one day per week or one day per month. A volunteer coordinator handles scheduling, which is very flexible. Museum Store staff is scheduled similarly by the Store manager.
All volunteers receive comprehensive on-the-job training, a subscription to the seasonal newsletter Campbell House Courier, and invitations to social and educational special events throughout the year. The best rewards, perhaps, are the friendships made, and the satisfaction of contributing to the cultural quality of life in St. Louis.
The members of the Board of Directors and various committees are all volunteers. They are invited to serve by the Executive Director and the Board Development Committee. If you would like to learn more about volunteer opportunities, please contact the Museum.
