Our welcome table volunteers are the first individuals welcome our visitors, respond to their concerns, insure that their particular time with us is well-spent. Welcome desk volunteers answer the phone, simply take emails, provide information, offer product, and supply all-round support toward staff. Their solution makes it possible for us to offer our visitors the very best experience feasible within Museum. Time dedication is three hours every month. Totally free parking is offered.
The Historical Society of Western Virginia features a fantastic project at the background Museum and at the O. Winston Link Museum to digitize its selections and make them available on the internet. Volunteers are needed at both museums, for either computer system or non-computer tasks. Full training is supplied, the time that varies because of the project selected and prior experience of the volunteer. Vouchers free-of-charge parking receive to those volunteers who make a typical time dedication. Most volunteers agree to a two or three hour move on a weekday between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. But some volunteers work at home, or make other prior arrangements aided by the Virtual range Project management.
