Volunteers are an essential part of the workforce of museums and historical organization.

The State Museum of Pennsylvania’s volunteer handbook outlines the history and mission of the organization, how to become a volunteer, ethics of the museum, benefits of volunteering, and the safety measures of the museum.

Also included are forms for volunteers to complete, such as a profile, emergency contact information, security badge receipt form, and volunteer termination form.

This photocopied PDF document serves as a useful model for organizations drafting a new or updating an old volunteer handbook.
