Volunteers

Think about donating your time and talent to the IMC!

The International Museum of Cultures provides you an opportunity to share your talent and interests. There is much to do, including maintaining our collections and facilities, assisting in the gift shop, becoming a docent and much, much more.

If you have a passion for passing on knowledge that furthers our understandings of diverse cultures, to the benefit of our own culture, please contact us. We’d LOVE to have you among our volunteers.

Become a Docent!

One of the common definitions of the word docent is a volunteer who leads tours in a museum. This common understanding does not, however, capture the heart of a docent.

A docent has a giving heart. A Docent is passionate about the value a museum provides to our community. A docent is someone who loves to volunteer their time for the love of people and the opportunity to share knowledge.

We are looking for these types of people .

Contact Maria Balduf, Volunteers and Research Manager, at 972-572-0462 or mbalduf@internationalmuseumofcultures.org to learn more about volunteering or becoming a docent.
