Volunteers are an integral part of every successful community. The Elgin County Museum needs the support of volunteers in areas that may include special events, education, marketing and workshops. Be a part of Elgin County’s rich history. Become a museum volunteer. Students are welcomed to work towards their forty hour volunteer graduation requirement. Becoming a volunteer with the County of Elgin requires a current vulnerable sector police check and an interview with Elgin County Museum staff.
