WAMA's corps of dedicated volunteers are critical to the success of the Museum, serving at the front desk, as tour guides, in educational programs, during special events, and much more. Volunteers embody the familial warmth of the institution and echo Walter Anderson's belief in community service.

Anyone over the age of 14 is eligible to volunteer. Volunteer benefits include 15% discounts in the WAMA store, and free membership (with 40 hours of annual service).

For more information on becoming a volunteer, contact Allene Brown-Chatham, Volunteer Director, at clcsi@cableone.net.

"[Volunteer] John Albrycht ... guided us through the rest of the museum. His insights added so much to our visit."
