Education & Outreach Volunteers

Education & Outreach volunteers are an essential and valued part of the NSLM providing support to our educational programs and outreach initiatives. As an Education & Outreach volunteer you will not only have the opportunity to see how a special collections library and fine art museum creates a remarkable experience for visitors, but you will also play a special role by helping visitors discover something new each time they come to an NSLM program or outreach event.

Education & Outreach Volunteer positions are varied and flexible. All Education & Outreach Volunteers must be over 16 years old.

All volunteer opportunities are available : 

  • in the Library
  • in the Museum
  • with special events, such as Open Late, Polo, and many others!
  • with educational programs, such as Sunday Sketch, lectures, and others!
