Volunteers Make the Difference

Volunteers play a vital role in the operation of the National World War I Museum and Memorial. The Museum relies on the dedication and commitment of more than 200 volunteers each year. Volunteers contribute more than 30,000 hours of service each year, sharing their knowledge, skills and talents throughout the Museum.

The Museum needs friendly people age 19 or older who can commit to at least 8 hours per month.  

Schedules are flexible and usually last 4 hours (sample: 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. or 1 to 5 p.m.).

All volunteers are required to attend a basic orientation, safety training and on-the-job training modules. Specialized areas require additional training.
