Help the Museum : Volunteer

Why should you consider volunteering at the Garden of the Gulf Museum?

As a volunteer at the Museum, not only will the museum benefit, you will as well. The act of volunteering fosters a sense of connection, purpose, and fulfillment.

One of the most significant benefits of volunteering is its positive impact on mental health.  Volunteering provides a meaningful way to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation by connecting individuals with like-minded peers and fostering a sense of belonging within a community.

Volunteering offers invaluable opportunities for personal and professional development. Through volunteering, individuals can develop new skills, gain practical experience, and expand their networks. . Moreover, volunteering can have tangible benefits for career advancement. Many employers value volunteer experience as a demonstration of commitment, leadership, and interpersonal skills. 

As a volunteer, you will also play a vital role in building a stronger community.  Learn and/or contribute to  the local history, engage children and adolescents in exploring Three Rivers history or their own family roots. You can also provide assistance or knowledge behind the scenes, assist at scheduled museum events, or serve on the Board. Bring Three Rivers history alive to the young and revive memories long forgotten to seniors.

Help the Museum, help yourself, and help Three Rivers grow.
