Join Museums and Heritage Services in telling the stories of our great city. Volunteers support special events, public tours and the demonstration of heritage trades (including gardening) at ten museums across Toronto. Share or develop your skills, discover your local history and get involved with your community. Youth volunteers (ages 14 – 18) are welcome!
We value the enormous contribution of volunteers to our sites and recognize the role that volunteers play in the success of our department and to the City of Toronto. As ambassadors of the 10 different sites which we operate, volunteers promote goodwill and a positive attitude among our visitors. We offer opportunities to utilize and broaden skills, observe and participate in a variety of events and programs, and get involved in the community.
Our museums host a variety of evening and weekend events which require volunteer support in areas of children's crafts, family activities, and site greeters. Do you have specialized knowledge in the field of local history or historic trades? We also offer longer term volunteer opportunities in the areas of gardening, guided tours, cooking/baking, and the print making process.
Are you a youth aged 14 – 18 looking for volunteer opportunities? Montgomery's Inn, Gibson House and Scarborough Museum all offer a Youth Volunteer Program which combines historical and modern activities, including photography, cooking, blogging, creating videos and event planning. We also offer youth volunteer opportunities at our summer camps.
