The Veterans Memorial Center is run almost completely by volunteers. There are many interesting and exciting ways you can become part of the team that helps veterans, provides resources and teaches everyone about the service and sacrifices our veterans have made.
Some of the opportunities that may be available include:
Museum Docent: Greet museum visitors, provide an orientation and answer questions.
Museum Store: Sell gifts and memorabilia to museum visitors.
Museum Office: Assist in tracking museum artifacts, researching artifacts and stories, and cataloging new donations.
Library: Greet library visitors, maintain the library, track check-outs and returns, catalog books, and read and provide critiques of books for both staff and patrons, if desired.
Manager on Duty (MOD): Greet Center visitors, coordinate setup and break-down for events, secure the facility, monitor security cameras and answer general questions. Note: you must be a member of the Brevard Veterans Council to become an MOD. See here to join. (add a link to the membership page)
Grounds Keeping: Assist with keeping the area clean, light gardening, maintaining outside exhibits and handyman jobs.
Most positions above are available during Center operating hours Monday – Saturday 8:30 – 4:00 and Sunday noon – 4:00. Museum Office positions typically work only Monday – Friday.
We also have many different committees that you may be interested in assisting. To find out more about what each of the departments and committees do, please read our Department and Committee Descriptions.
