Benefits of Volunteering

The reasons people volunteer are as varied as volunteer experiences themselves. Some volunteers are drawn by the mission and find great personal reward in supporting the work of the Museums of Burlington.  Students in our Youth Volunteer Program often seek experience to gain workplace skills and better understand how to work as part of a team. The goal is to provide students with a unique learning experience through the many volunteer opportunities offered at the Museums of Burlington.  Adults have experience and knowledge not easily found in a young workforce.  Additional volunteers are members of companies that support employee voluntarism. They often contribute by bringing their skills in order to advance the work they believe in.  When you become a volunteer with the Museums of Burlington, your volunteer engagement experience is important to us. We invest in our volunteers through training to maximize learning and development opportunities.
