Volunteer for the Kentucky Building We need you!
If you are between the ages of 14 and 99 the Kentucky Building needs you! The Kentucky Building needs volunteers to assist in a variety of areas including:
Work a two hour shift at one of our many special events throughout the year such as Pioneer Day, US Bank Art Show, or Christmas in Kentucky. Duties are as diverse as registering participants, taking photographs, or guiding Big Red around the museum! Special events are always festive and fun.
Exhibits and Collections
Work with our Exhibit Curator or Collection Curator to research, photograph, or exhibit items from our many extraordinary collections.
Special Collections (Kentucky Library), Manuscripts or WKU Archives
Work as much or as little as your schedule permits. Duties could include sorting photographs, organizing a manuscript collection, transcribing an early letter, and much more. Fascinating work!
School Field Trips
Work a two hour shift assisting with one of our many large school field trips. Children engage in a variety of hand-on activities throughout the museum and an extra pair of adult hands is always needed! Students and teachers are always so appreciative for the extra volunteer support.
Work with one of our outstanding spring, summer, or fall break camps. Assist one of our staff members with art and history programs as campers explore that week's theme. Camp is always a blast!
