Volunteers are an integral part of every successful community. The Elgin County Museum needs the support of volunteers in the areas of collections care, 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 police check and an interview with the Human Resources Department.
