Preserving Arizona
Summer Volunteers Needed for the Arizona Capitol Museum

PHOENIX – The Arizona Capitol Museum needs your help. Join our special Summer Volunteer Team and help visitors enjoy Arizona's historic Capitol. You'll engage with Arizona's history in the building where statehood began, and you'll help us prepare for the state's Centennial year.

The Summer Volunteer Team will monitor exhibit traffic and provide directional assistance to enhance the visitor experience. We ask for a minimum of one four-hour (10am to 2pm) commitment per week from June through September 2011. Training will be provided.

These positions are not tour guides or docents. You may apply for those positions if you wish to stay beyond September. The basic training you'll receive lays the groundwork for more involvement as 2012 draws near and all eyes are on the Copper Dome.

We at the Arizona Capitol Museum connect people with Arizona's government – past and present. Join us for the summer and you'll become an integral part of the visitor experience. Immerse yourself in history and learn how Arizona government has evolved from territorial times to statehood. Meet visitors from across the country and all over the globe. Work alongside Museum Staff as they guide tours through the Capitol.

Apply now for this special program running from June through September 2011. Applications will be accepted until May 23rd, and interviews will begin the end of the May. Once accepted, Summer Volunteers will begin training the second week of June. If you're interested in a longer term commitment, we also have a few openings for Volunteer Tour Guides this summer.

Applicants must be able to stand for extended periods of time. A friendly positive approach to working with the public is important. Training is provided free of charge.

Contact: If interested, please complete the Volunteer Application and specify "Summer Volunteer" or call the Museum Volunteer Coordinator at 602-926-3731.
