Volunteer Opportunities

Brighten the day and share the history of the Seabees! The U.S. Navy Seabee Museum is looking for dedicated people who care about history and want to provide the public with a great visitor experience!  We are seeking committed people with a passion for history who are interested in long term volunteering.

The U.S. Navy’s vision is to develop and effectively utilize a total force, consisting of military Service members (active, reserve, and retired), Government civilians, contractors, and volunteers to execute Navy’s mission: supporting operational commanders with the right person and doing the right work, at the right time, with the right training, at the best value. Former Services members and employees can be an especially useful resource for all areas of volunteer service.

What type of opportunities are available?  

You may be the face of the museum by greeting visitors at the admissions desk. 

You may serve as a docent providing guided tours upon request.

You may support educational activities by developing and implementing curriculum and content or serving as an office manager. 

You may serve with the curator or archivist on special projects.

We want to provide the visitors with the best experience possible and you can help us out by volunteering! Strong communication skills are required and volunteers need to be available to work  a 4-hour shift weekly, be a team player, as well as to be able to work independently.  If you enjoy engaging people and using your skills to facilitate positive experiences, then we want you to join our team! 

What are the requirements to participate? 

  • Must be at least 16 years of age. Written parental consent is required for all unmarried volunteers under 18 years of age.
  • Must pass a criminal history background check.

How do I apply?

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our Supervisory Education Specialist at (805) 982-1249 or email USNSMVolunteer.fct@navy.mil to request an application packet. You will need to complete and submit:
