Delaware Agricultural Museum & Village (DAMV) volunteers are recruited from the Delmarva Area through service agencies and personal contact. DAMV depends on volunteers to perform a wide range of duties and keep the Museum functioning and to aid in its growth and development. No matter what activities you choose, you will be doing work that is necessary to the Museum and we sincerely appreciate your time, talent, and involvement.
New volunteers are asked to complete an application form and attend an orientation session to learn about the Museum. Volunteers then participate in a general training session about the role and responsibility of a Museum volunteer.
Volunteers have the opportunity to attend training sessions, educational programs, trips, and social occasions. The volunteers occasionally participate in community service projects or fund-raising activities that benefit the Museum.
Volunteers are expected to become members of the Museum. Membership is not expensive and entitles the member to many benefits.
Volunteers are expected to keep a record of their volunteer hours. These records are required for the Museum's annual report and are important when the Museum applies for grants which require matching funds. Each year volunteers donate thousands of hours to the Museum.
Depending on your volunteer duties you may be asked to dress appropriately to the turn-of-the-century.
