BE A VOLUNTEER
At this time, our greatest need is for GLBT History Museum Front Desk Volunteers. Museum volunteers are asked to commit to at least two four-hour shifts per month.
We look to the desk volunteers to exude enthusiasm for queer history and for the museum. Volunteers also will be comfortable welcoming members of the public from around the world and operating a point-of-sale system.
We’re also looking for volunteers to help with fundraising events, public programs and mailings. This is a great way to get involved if you’re available to volunteer only on an occasional basis.
