Volunteer FAQ

What are the volunteer hours/shifts?

We are open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 11am -4pm. Volunteers choose the days and times that they work.

Is there a minimum amount of time I must work to be a volunteer?

No, we only ask that you try to come in once a week so that you can keep up with any changes or events.

Is there a dress code?

Casual business attire is preferred.

Is there parking on-site?

Yes, as well as street parking in front of the house.

Is there a training program?

Yes. All volunteers are trained as tour guides (unless assigned to specific projects) and will go through an orientation period prior to giving tours on a solo basis.

Will I get to work the annual Candlelight Tour?

Yes! As our biggest and most popular event of the year, the Candlelight Tour always needs volunteers.
