The ideal candidate need not have served in the Marines or have any ties to the military. The chief requirements are an interest in Marine Corps history and plenty of energy.
Volunteer Program Requirements
Volunteer positions are open to all individuals with an interest and a commitment of service to the Museum who meet the qualifications without reference to race, color, religion, sex, age, or national origin. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and able to perform their prescribed duties. A minimum time commitment of 8 hours per month is required to maintain volunteer status. Volunteers work independently, with other volunteers, and with permanent Museum staff.
Application and Training
Applications are submitted to the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation’s Vice President for Operations. Applicants will be contacted for an interview by the Volunteer Coordinator. A comprehensive training program is designed to prepare participants to operate effectively in their role as a NMMC volunteer. This invaluable training program features sessions highlighting each exhibit area and its collections. This mandatory training is scheduled as the requirement for new volunteers warrants.
