School kids volunteer at Port Aransas MuseumWhy Volunteer

Volunteers are the backbone of every great organization; they are what make it an integral part of the community.

Volunteers helped us make our goal of a Museum possible. People helped paint and prep the building. Professionals from Port Aransas and out-of-towners helped contractors with all facets of the remodel. Volunteers and Garden Club members worked with city workers to landscape the complex. Docents are all volunteers, as are all members except the Museum Director.

Volunteer Positions

There are a variety of ways you can contribute your skills to help the museum prosper and grow:

  • Become a docent — docents give tours at the museum, work in the Museum Gift Shop, help with Little Chapel tours, help with lecture socials serving drinks and snacks, clean the Museum, work on exhibits, help with computer skills, transcribe logs, conduct interviews and more.
  • Help with maintenance of the Museum.
  • Help with school/community outreach projects.
  • Teach boat building at the Farley Boat Works.
