As we approach our 47th Opening Day, we’re looking for friendly, community-minded people to help us provide great experiences to our visitors during the upcoming season.
Volunteers at Renfrew Museum and Park assist professional staff with a wide variety of tasks including our popular programs and events, gardening and grounds keeping, tours, interpretation, artifact collections and exhibits, guest engagement, outreach, and so much more!
If you’re interested in learning how you can help us advance Renfrew’s mission, please plan to attend one of our mandatory informational meetings.
The meetings will be held in the Wagon Shed Room located at the Visitors Center with simultaneous livestream online via Zoom.
A recording will be distributed to all registrants so, even if you can’t join us live, you’ll still be well-informed.
This 90-minute session will be led by Renfrew’s administrative staff.
Join our dedicated team of volunteers and help Renfrew fulfill its vision “to be a welcoming and memorable destination where everyone can walk back in time.”
Renfrew relies on volunteer docents who interpret of our beautiful, historic Pennsylvania German farmstead for Renfrew’s diverse audiences. We’re looking for friendly people to engage our visitors, helping them both learn our history and enjoy great experiences at Renfrew Museum and Park. Initial training for new docents, or those interested in a refresher, is scheduled for a three-hour session on Saturday, August 1, 2020. Together we’ll cover the general history of Renfrew, our organizational structure, and tour the 1812 Museum House and front farmstead buildings as a group. Afterward, you will be paired with an experienced docent or member of our staff who will serve as your mentor while you develop, prepare, and practice your own hour-long tour. When you feel comfortable, you will then perform a certification tour for our Executive Director and officially become a Renfrew docent! Since we never stop learning, regular continuing education opportunities will be offered with chances to dive deeper into the rich history of Renfrew’s property, buildings, and collections. Join a special group of volunteers with a passion for connecting people to the past. Consider becoming a Renfrew docent today! Learn more below under “Tours & Interpretation”.
