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

Gerry De Amico

Gerry De Amico

Gerry DeAmico is our August Volunteer of the Month. Over the past decade of volunteering, Gerry has worked from home on projects to support the Full-Day Education Programs and Holiday Memories. Currently, Gerry is the Education Program’s “Go To Man” for creating the hundreds of jingle belt kits used by students attending the Full Day Native American History Education Program. He also happily takes on new tasks when asked, such as preparing hundreds of train wheels to be used in building the Holiday Memories “Make and Take” project.

When asked why he volunteers, Gerry says, “Making project kits gives me an opportunity to give something back to our community which has given so much to me. Since I am wheelchair bound, it also gives me something to do to creatively use my time.”
