Volunteer work is an absolutely vital part of the Museum’s operations; we simply could not stay open without the support of volunteers. The commitment of each volunteer to the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum makes it a special place in which to work.
Whatever the interests and skill level of a volunteer, there is a good chance that the volunteer can fill a role in the Museum operations. There is plenty of meaningful work to be done in a variety of departments and capacities throughout the Museum. Positions within the many areas of the Museum require skill levels which range from basic to specialized. Volunteers are assigned tasks to assist in a variety of duties depending on the volunteer’s experience and abilities. The volunteer opportunities are as diverse as the working environment.
The broadest and maybe the most meaningful definition of volunteering: Doing more than you have to because you want to, in a cause you consider good. Ivan Scheier
