Volunteering At Glenbow

Voluteer at Glenbow

As an organization, we believe that volunteers are vital to the work we do. Thanks to hundreds of dedicated individuals, Glenbow Museum has a strong and vital volunteer program for 50 years. Through their enthusiasm, efforts, and involvement we are able to enhance our programs, better manage our collections, and provide our visitors with a great experience.

Glenbow Volunteers represent the museum in all capacities, whether they are frontline, serving visitors in various programs or the Glenbow Shop, or behind the scenes, ensuring that our collections are well kept and up to date. Our volunteers are all ages, come from all backgrounds, and are passionate about sharing their time, talents, and energy with us. Some volunteers have been with us over 20 years and continue to volunteer regularly.
