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

 

We are excited to introduce a new feature. This marks the debut of the Volunteer Spotlight. While the Museum staff have many day to day duties, none of what we do would be possible without the many talents and dedication of our volunteers. Over 400 people contributed countless hours to the Museum in 2016, lending a hand in nearly all areas of the Museum including gallery host, education facilitator, Holiday Memories host, and more.

Myra Schneider is a familiar face to many at the Museum. She has been involved here since the early 1990s. Over the years, she has been a regular facilitator with our Full Day Student Education Programs, served as a member of various committees, and worked countless events like History Adventure Weekend, Fish Boil, and Third Saturdays. She has also spent time giving tours and greeting visitors while helping out in the Gift Shop . She was even brave enough to be the first volunteer to learn the new cash register/POS system (She was awesome!!). When asked why she volunteers, Myra says “ I love it! It is a fun place where the people are great. And I love learning about my adopted community.”
