Volunteer Positions
Administrative Services
Due to the Museum's high profile, vast connections and involvement with the community there is much to be done behind the scenes. A volunteer in an administrative position might do such things as filing, mailing, labeling, envelope stuffing, data entry and typing. No prior experience is required.
Aircraft Restoration
Restoration volunteers help maintain and restore the Museum's aircraft collection through manual labor, such as painting, sanding, and riveting. The majority of restoration work is done during the warmer months because the restoration area is on the flight deck. This position reports to the Aircraft Collections Manager. A volunteer will have to complete the standard Volunteer training before beginning their assignment in aircraft restoration. A prior knowledge in metal works, painting, or aircraft is preferred and these positions are only available during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
In Latin docent means "to teach". As an Intrepid docent you will be trained to lead select public tours and/or give "stand and deliver" presentations of areas of the Museum. They will be expected to provide accurate historical information and interpret exhibits to our guests. This position reports to the Tour Guide and Interactive Manager. A volunteer will be required to first complete the standard Volunteer training before enrolling in the next open 12 week Docent training course.
Exhibit Explainer
This is the most common volunteer position and requires a high level of customer service. You will receive and need to learn detailed information about specific exhibits in the Museum. It includes explaining such areas as the Captain’s Bridge, Admiral’s Bridge, Flight Deck, Hangar Deck and the Space Shuttle Pavilion and more. The time spent with a guest(s) will usually not exceed ten minutes. You will explain the exhibit while not diverting guests from their own self-guided tours, but rather adding a human touch and a additional information.
Museum Services
This position also requires a high level of customer service and is also a common position for volunteers. It includes greeting guests at the Welcome Center and Museum entrances, working with the information desk, operating the theater, helping guests navigate the Museum, conducting visitor surveys and much more..
