Volunteers Needed!

Do you have a few hours to spare one day per week, or per month? Do you like to meet people? Maybe you can only spare a few hours on an irregular basis. Then why not volunteer that time with us at Sheboygan County Historical Museum.

We need volunteers to:

  • Work with children in our full day student programs.
  • Prepare materials for the full day student programs.
  • Work in the Museum Store on Saturdays during the season and for special events.
  • Do data entry on the computer.
  • Help with collection cataloging.
  • Be a gallery host during special events.
  • Do outside clean up work.
  • Help with any number of miscellaneous projects.

As a volunteer you meet and work with other volunteers and staff to educate people about Sheboygan County’s history. No experience or knowledge is necessary, we’ll help you learn everything you need to know.

If you would like to be a part of our exciting programs and events or would like more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Executive Director Travis Gross at the Museum (920) 458-1103.

Thank you for taking the time to help!

Volunteer Highlight

Darlene Navis

Darlene Navis

Our September Spotlight Volunteer is Darlene Navis.  Darlene first began at the Museum as a member of the Board of Directors in 1990. It was during these years that significant growth and change occurred at the organization, including the hiring of the first full-time Museum Director and the physical expansion of the Museum. Darlene was a key visionary in the establishment of an Endowment Fund to support the organization not only during the time of significant growth, but into the future, becoming chair of the Endowment Fund Committee within a year of the fund’s establishment. She served as a member of the Board of Directors through 2005, but continues to serve to this day as a member of the Endowment Fund Committee. When asked why she volunteers, Darlene said, “I volunteer because history teaches us so much about our community and “the why” we are today.  As a volunteer I meet many interesting and talented people who share similar interests and goals.  It is indeed rewarding to give back and at the same time move history forward.”
