Volunteer FAQ

What type of activities do volunteers perform?

Volunteers have the opportunity to support a variety of activities including, but not limited to, visitor services, special events, tours, education and administrative support.

How do I apply to be a volunteer?

Begin the process by completing an application on the application page of the Museum’s Volunteer Portal. Applications are processed in cycles and include a 15-minute interview. Accepted applicants will also complete 10 hours of training and a background check. Some volunteer positions may require additional, specialized training.

Who can be a volunteer?

Our volunteers have a variety of experiences, expertise, abilities, and backgrounds. We recommend all interested individuals, whether they have experience with the Army or not, fill out a volunteer application. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old – check back for updates about volunteer opportunities for those younger than 18 years old.

Are there other ways to volunteer if I cannot volunteer in person?

At this time, there are only in-person volunteer opportunities.

May volunteers set their own volunteer schedule? Is there a required time commitment?

Yes. Volunteers manage their schedule by selecting available three-hour shifts through the Museum’s Volunteer Portal. Volunteers are expected to commit a minimum of nine hours per month (three shifts). This requirement is currently waived due to the ongoing public health crisis.

May I talk to someone about the volunteer program?

Please contact our Visitor Services Division by calling 800.506.2672 or email the volunteer program.
