Become a VVAC Volunteer

Are you interested in Native American cultures, archaeology, Southwestern art and history? Volunteers play an integral role in the Center's daily operations and special events. From working in collections and archives to welcoming guests at special events, volunteers provide essential support to VVAC's mission. If this is of interest, become a volunteer at VVAC where you will:

  • Expand your knowledge through classes, lectures, and field trips.

  • Work with friendly, enthusiastic people who share your interests.

  • Contribute to public education and stewardship of Native American material culture.


Volunteer opportunities range from greeting visitors at the Museum front desk, leading guided tours through the Museum, working with our school program, helping with special events and exhibit openings, and helping staff members (including the curator and librarian) with various projects.
