Volunteer

No matter what your interest, you will find an exciting volunteer opportunity at the Witte Museum.

Teens, college students, adults, and corporate teams volunteer every day to make a difference at the Witte.

Opportunities include assisting visitors in the Museum galleries, supporting our staff and assisting our campers with fun, hands-on learning experiences, helping with large special events such as large fundraisers like our Game Dinner and Cocktails and Cultures, or assisting “behind the scenes” with our administrative or collections teams. Whatever your interests, the Witte Museum has a volunteer opportunity for you. If you enjoy learning new things and want to share your talents with others, the Witte Museum wants you!
