Volunteers are the heart of our mission: Join the Volunteer Corps!

Years ago, Jimmy Doolittle, leader of the renowned Doolittle Raiders, said, “The heart of a volunteer is the strongest of all.” The Museum's volunteers play crucial roles presenting and preserving the stories of WWII in the Pacific and on the home front. Volunteers greet visitors, present programs, bring battle scenes to life, educate school children, work behind-the-scenes in our gardens, administrative offices, and so much more. We offer myriad opportunities to continuously develop your understanding of the war and its stories, and to make an impact every day.

Adult volunteer requirements:

  • Successful completion of our Museum orientation program
  • Volunteer service at least 4 hours per month for a minumum total of 48 hours annually.
  • A minimum one-year commitment.

If you have a heart for volunteering, join us!
