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!
July 2021 - Hayley Shirk
Our July 2021 volunteer is another relatively new face here at the Museum. Hayley joined the Museum’s Volunteer Crew in February of this year and if you have stopped in on a Saturday since then, you may have already met her! While this has been one of our main volunteer opportunities of late, Hayley plans to help out at some of our upcoming events as we get back to more of our in-person programming. Like so many of our volunteers, her can do attitude, along with her willingness to help out in a variety of ways, is certainly appreciated as we reintroduce more activities. We at the Museum cannot express how appreciative we are of the fact that everyone has been flexible over the last 18 months!
When asked why she volunteers at the Museum, Hayley replied “I volunteer at the Sheboygan County Historical Society and Museum because I believe that it’s important to give of oneself in their community, that volunteering makes our community stronger and allows us to see past our differences, and build bridges not walls. The museum is an important part of our community in that it keeps us cognizant of our past, and brings in exhibits that highlight important facets of both Wisconsin and national history.”
