Volunteer

We are excited for your interest in volunteering with the National Hellenic Museum. Volunteers are welcome year-round to help with the Museum operations and special events.  The National Hellenic Museum offers a rewarding and engaging volunteer experience that is enjoyable and beneficial.

It is because we provide so much training and we give our volunteers so much responsibility that we have several important requirements. All volunteers are asked to complete a background check, at no cost, after completing a staff interview.

Volunteer docents help visitors understand and appreciate museum collections. Docents lead school groups and adult groups on tours through the museum, teaching them to look closely at objects and interpret artifacts. Docents may also help students with art projects. Teaching experience is a plus, but not required. Docent opportunities are for volunteers who have a strong interest in Greek culture and history, a flexible schedule, and can devote regular hours to the museum.

Special Projects

The Museum always has something going on, and sometimes we need extra hands. Special Projects volunteers could be asked to do any number of things, from helping out at Museum events to assembling shelves for a new exhibit. Special Projects volunteers may have specialized skills and can devote flexible hours to the Museum.
