About Volunteer Interest Night

The Fredericksburg Area Museum and Cultural Center is pleased to announce a special Volunteer Interest Night and Open House at the Museum on Thursday, February 7th. Beginning at 6 pm, the evening will feature a tour of FAMCC’s Catherine W. Jones McKann Center conducted by Education and Volunteer Coordinator, Janelle Kennedy. Following the tour, Ms. Kennedy will be joined by current Museum volunteers who will share their insights and experiences of the volunteer opportunities the Museum offers. The evening is FREE OF CHARGE and no pre-registration is required. For more information, please contact Ms. Kennedy at 540-371-3037, ext 142, or jkennedy@famcc.org.

The Museum uses volunteers in a variety of capacities including; Museum Store staff, front line assistants, gallery assistants, tour leaders, special event staff, graphic design, photography, administrative duties, education assistants, researchers, and much more. The Museum accepts volunteers aged 14 and up and provides documentation of volunteer hours for service project requirements.

Last year, volunteers contributed over 5600 hours of their time to the Museum allowing for expanded programming opportunities due to a more efficient use of staff time and funds. Museum volunteers are provided all resources needed to ensure a positive and successful volunteer experience including free training.
