Ready, Set, Go. . . Volunteer today!

What do volunteers do? This is a great way to serve your community. Most of your work will be interacting with Museum visitors by leaing tours for school groups, doing demonstrations or giving presentations. At times you may also work on special events or with children's classes and activities. We provide all the training you will need. Working behind the scenes (indoors or outdoors) is an option, as well.

How much time will it take? Depending on the area in which you volunteer, we have a mentoring program to help you become familiar with the Museum and its programs. A combination of written materials, mentoring, observation, and volunteer training is offered to help you become comfortable informing visitors about the Museum.

Why should I try this? You will have fun, learn new skills, meet new people and help the Museum preserve the history of farming, ranching and rural life in New Mexico. You will make a difference! Volunteers are an important part of the Museum family and are honored each year with a recognition dinner. There are also regular field trips.

Who can apply? Anyone who is friendly and dependable may apply. A willingness to learn new things and a desire to help others is important.
