The House of the Seven Gables is pleased to introduce a new volunteer program at the museum. Volunteer contributions of time, talent, and energy will enhance the already stellar array of quality programs and experiences that we offer to students and adults. Through the generous efforts of dedicated volunteers, we hope to build upon the spectacular reputation The House of the Seven Gables enjoys among cultural institutions in the country.
The volunteer program at The House of the Seven Gables is designed to benefit both the volunteer and the museum. Within this new program, volunteers will be able to participate in a variety of activities that contribute to the daily operation of the museum. In return, volunteers will benefit from the guidance of museum professionals as they learn new and exciting skills. In addition, they will receive many member and employee perks including discounts in the Museum Store and for special programs and free admission to the site. Volunteers will also enjoy a flexible work schedule.
Volunteers are important to non-profit institutions like ours, because volunteer time is considered by grantors as an “in kind” contribution toward matching funds, as well as further evidence of the public’s support for our programs and events. As a volunteer, you can become an integral part of our operation by getting involved in our Visitor Service department as a guide, exhibit monitor, or sales associate in the Museum Store.
Opportunities to teach our educational programs for schools and assist our Administrative Departments are also available. By working side by side with our employees and managers, volunteers can help us achieve the goals of education, preservation and providing community services for families as set forth in our mission.
