Volunteer Opportunities

Becoming a volunteer is a great way to help preserve and share Riverside’s history. The Riverside Metropolitan Museum and its Heritage House have a variety of opportunities for volunteers. Volunteers can assist at the Heritage House, help out in the Museum’s gift shop, participate in special events and school programs, or lead Museum tours. All volunteers interact with Museum guests and provide general information about the Museum’s exhibits and programs to the public. No experience is required and training is provided.

Becoming a Volunteer

Volunteer opportunities are available through the City of Riverside Municipal Volunteer Program or by becoming a Riverside Museum Associates Member. All volunteers must be at least 14 years old and complete a volunteer application. Applications and minimum qualifications are available on the City’s website at www.riversideca.gov under "City Jobs". For more information, please contact the Museum.

Internships for College Students

The Riverside Metropolitan Museum offers internship opportunities for college students funded through the Federal Work-Study program. All intern applicants must have a current Federal Work-Study award, which can be obtained by speaking to a financial aid advisor at your college. Unpaid volunteer internships are also available; please see “Becoming a Volunteer” above on how to apply. College interns are responsible for carrying out a variety of tasks, including: giving demonstrations on subjects such as history, anthropology, and natural science; working with Museum Curators in the collections; leading tours and activities for school and group programs; and working in the Nature Lab with live animals and plants.
