Volunteers are essential to the Museum’s day-to-day operations and are the front line liaison with our customers. We are committed to create and sponsor educational programs for schools and public groups in order to educate, motivate and inspire the next generation.
We depend on our volunteers to support the Museum through various activities and to enrich the experiences of our visitors. Because the Museum is focused on being a teaching institution, we are always looking to recruit candidates with the appropriate skills and interests to develop into Tour Guides to professionally engage our varied customers.
Volunteer opportunities encompass a broad range of activities:
Education Department Support
- Living History program
- Flight School instructors
- Conducting tours for school children
- Outreach programs
- Special Programs support
Exhibit Hall Ambassador
We are looking for personable, outgoing people with an ability and desire to work with diverse audiences. Volunteer applications are accepted throughout the year. All new candidates must participate in a personal interview, followed by reference checks. Prospective volunteers accepted into our volunteer program will be required to attend a formal volunteer orientation and training program offered on a quarterly basis.
Eligibility and Skills
- Professionally represent the Museum and support our mission objectives
- Possess excellent communications skills
- Reliably work assigned shifts
- Willing and able to work with diverse groups of children, adults, staff and fellow volunteers
- Commitment to attend all required training
- Accept supervision and evaluation of your volunteer work
The Museum is open to the public seven days a week, and volunteers are utilized at all times. Therefore, a volunteer is expected to provide a regular commitment of time, with a minimum of 10 hours monthly. Volunteers who can work a minimum of one four-hour shift per week are especially desirable. Based upon the Museum’s needs and your availability, you will be assigned a specific shift.
Museum volunteers tour Gulfstream facilities at Love Field
On January 8, 2013 Gulfstream hosted a tour for about 35 museum volunteers. Hosted by General Manager Robby Harless, the volunteers were treated to a wonderful presentation followed up with a guided tour provided by salesman Mike Rose and Doug Neveu. The visit was enjoyed by the Museum’s volunteers and it was nice to see what our “neighbors” across the runway are doing.
