A compelling visitor experience starts with inspired and passionate people – employees and volunteers. The Culture & Heritage Museums offers volunteers unique opportunities to work closely with staff to create memorable visitor experiences at all our sites. It’s a great place to play, learn, and volunteer.

Benefits of Volunteering

Volunteering provides many benefits including cultivation of community relationships, networking and professional development, and the opportunity to enrich the lives of others. As a non-profit organization volunteers at Historic Brattonsville, the Main Street Children’s Museum,  the McCelvey Center and  the Museum of York County play a vital role by donating their time; the benefits to the lives touched are priceless.

Who Can Volunteer?

Youth/Students: The Junior Docent Program allows young people in fifth through twelfth grade to volunteer in period costume at Historic Brattonsville. Applications for this year-long program are accepted in the fall.

Adults: Do you have a unique hobby or skill you would like to share? Would you like to learn a new one? Come and join a great group of people and see tremendous talent in action!

Groups: Church, community, service, support and youth groups are an important part of our special event volunteer corps.
