We are a little short on docents at the Custom House upon reopening after COVID. Would you like to try -- maybe pairing with a friend? It's a pleasant way to spend 4 hours a week while learning about NL's maritime heritage and greeting visitors to our town! 

Custom House Maritime Museum volunteers have the unique opportunity to enlighten and inspire the public through stories about the many accomplishments of our maritime forebears. Volunteers support the museum by assisting with tours, educational programs, special events, the museum store, and other activities that serve the public.

Who Can Volunteer?
Volunteering is open to adults, seniors, high school and college students. Interested individuals should enjoy history, be outgoing and friendly, and enjoy working with children and adults in a fun, interactive style. Volunteers must be reliable, work well in a team setting, and be self-motivated. Special skills: carpentry, cleaning, etc. are appreciated.

Volunteer benefits include access to a library with resource materials, a museum store discount, and the opportunity to meet others interested in history and museums. Training occurs annually and is provided by museum staff.
