Become a Volunteer!
Join our team of enthusiastic volunteers
Support your local history museum
Our volunteer program offers exceptional benefits and rewards for participants. Benefits include the free education you receive learning about the local history of the Valley; while the rewards come from making a difference in the lives of the public, local residents, and especially young students learning about the history of Temecula. We have several areas for volunteer services so look to see which best meets your interests.
No advance knowledge or training required, just the desire to learn and willingness to share your knowledge.
Are you a history buff? Do you love talking about history? Then this position is for you! Our docents lead walking tours through the museum and Old Town Temecula and share our history with visitors! Training is provided. You must be 18 years or older to be a docent.
Do you shine when giving guests great customer service? Then you would love working in our gift shop! Volunteers make sales, answer phones, greet guests, help with guest concerns, and other administrative tasks. Training is provided. Must be 18 years or older.
The museum hosts a summer camp each year and depends on the help of our enthusiastic and responsible camp counselor volunteers to help make it better each year! If you love to work with children, enjoy making crafts and participating in fun activities, then this position is for you! You must be 16 years or older to be a summer camp volunteer. Summer camp usually occurs in early to mid July.
Special events occur frequently at the museum that need volunteer help. The museum also changes out exhibits frequently and we need volunteers to help us move and unpack the exhibit. We are also open to new areas for volunteer work. Can you type? Do you sew? Are you a history buff that enjoys speaking? Are you a historic artisan? Let us know and we can find a volunteer opportunity for you!
