Are you interested in working alongside a diverse group of dedicated staff and volunteers? Want to know more about what goes on behind-the-scenes at Cameron Art Museum? As a volunteer, you may explore new areas of interest, meet stimulating people, get involved with Wilmington’s cultural community, attend social and educational events, and learn marketable skills.
Cameron Art Museum volunteers have provided several thousand hours of service, in a variety of volunteer roles. Volunteers have the opportunity to gain exposure to the day-to-day life of a major regional art museum and contribute valuable visitor services to a nonprofit institution. Our volunteers contribute their talents, knowledge, skills, enthusiasm, and energy and, in turn, provide an invaluable service to our community.
What are the personal qualities of a Museum Volunteer?
Initiative taking, proactively seeking out visitor contact and comfortable speaking in front of a small group, friendly and outgoing, comfortable using cash register and computer technology, physical stamina—oftentimes shift or assignment will be spent standing or walking.
Whether it’s answering the phone, stuffing, filing, copying, data entry or all of the above, office volunteers are on the job. Volunteers work individually or in congenial small groups to perform these crucial tasks. Scheduling is determined by the projects available.
Events require many volunteers throughout the year. Assist with welcoming guests, ticket-taking and/or sign-in, directing guests and way finding, serving food and beverages; informing visitors on how to become a member of Cameron Art Museum and offering member benefits; encouraging visitors to sign the comments book or computer. As needed; be aware that events may be scheduled after-hours.
Are there benefits to becoming a volunteer? You bet.
Other museum volunteer positions may be available. To get a complete list of currently available opportunities, please contact
