National Museum of the Great Lakes Looking For Volunteers

As The National Museum of the Great Lakes is gearing up for the summer season, the museum is looking for volunteers for the upcoming year.

“As the flowers bloom and the temperatures rise, the National Museum of the Great Lakes is calling on the Toledo community and beyond to be part of their crew. With spring in the air, it’s the perfect time to explore volunteer opportunities at the museum, where every role is an adventure in itself,” Ashley Steichert, Marketing and Communications Manager for the museum wrote in a statement. “Whether you’re a history aficionado, a special events enthusiast, or passionate about unique team-building activities, the museum offers a wide array of options to get involved.”

Volunteer opportunities include: 

  • Educational Guides: Become a docent for our galleries and museum ships, sharing the rich tales of the Great Lakes with visitors.
  • Administrative Support: Assist behind the scenes with essential tasks that keep the museum running smoothly.
  • Event and Landscaping Support: Lend a hand in creating beautiful spaces and memorable experiences for our guests.
  • Research and Writing: Contribute to the discovery and sharing of knowledge through research projects and publications.
  • Corporate and Group Volunteering: Host unique team-building events while giving back to the community.

Those interested in joining the museum volunteers can visit one of the Volunteers 1st Days open house on the first day of each month from noon to 4pm.

“No matter how much time you can dedicate, whether it’s once a month or several times a week, or if you’re looking to involve your company in the community, we have the perfect role for you,” Rebecca Gray, Data and System Analyst and Volunteer Coordinator for the museum said. “Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization, whether they’re helping with administrative tasks, guiding visitors, or supporting our special events.”

The National Museum of the Great Lakes was founded in 1944 to share and preserve the cultural history of the Great Lakes.
