Victoria Mansion would not be the vibrant organization it is without volunteers. We offer training sessions throughout the year and have a variety of opportunities available. Volunteers at Victoria Mansion are the public face of the museum. By generously donating their time, volunteers enable the Mansion staff to focus on restoration, educational initiatives, and other projects.
Volunteers at the Mansion can take part in several ways. The most popular option is to receive training as a docent. Docents act as a room stewards on free-flow days, give guided tours, and lead themed tours to school groups. Other ways volunteers can help are to assist with special events and programs, help in the museum gift shop, offer administrative support to the office staff, and join committees. The Earle G. Shettleworth Junior Docent Program provides training for students ages 12-18 to become room stewards in the house. Inquire about the Junior Docent Program.
