The Museum of Anthropology and American Archaeology Divison are often looking for dedicated volunteers to work under the direction of museum staff to meet many of our public education, research, and collections needs. Many activities undertaken by the museum depend on the energy and assistance of enthusiastic, well-trained, and reliable volunteers for success. New volunteers are generally recruited at the start of each semester, though resumes may be sent at any time.
If you are interested in volunteering please contact us for more information.
Volunteer Opportunities at the MoA
Active volunteers are engaged in a myriad of activities from leading tours to assistance at special events. If you are interested in volunteering at the Museum of Anthropology, please review the volunteer opportunities listed and then submit an application for a specific opportunity. Some activities require training but for most volunteer positions the only requirement is an interest in archaeology, anthropology, world cultures, a love of learning, and a willingness to make a regular time commitment, usually two to four hours, one or two days per week. Volunteers with specific skills and experience may be invited to work on special short- or long-term projects. The Museum depends on volunteer help for many of its projects and much of its development.
If there are no open positions in your area of interest and you would like to discuss other ways to engage at the museum, please contact the museum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
