Volunteers are crucial to the operation of Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital. Volunteers are needed to lead tours, help maintain the gardens, assist with special events, greet visitors, help with behind the scenes administrative tasks, and more.
Docents will work in the Hill Center, conducting tours of the Old Naval Hospital building, the Grounds, and the Carriage House on a regular schedule. Hill Center docents will undergo a training program that will provide detailed information about the history and the major concepts and goals of the Hill Center.
Volunteers will assist with the distribution of postcards and posters around town that promotes the events at Hill Center.
Volunteers staff the front desk at Hill Center, greeting visitors, answering phones, registering guests for events, and handling inquiries.
These volunteers will assist the Facilities Manager and the landscaping company with the planting, clean-up, and the general upkeep of the grounds of the Hill Center.
