Volunteers make it happen!

Why Volunteer?

Our Volunteer Needs

Docents (Tour Guides)
Docents lead guided public tours and/or facilitate self-guided public tours at the Wornall and/or Majors House. The average time commitment is 2 tour shifts per month – a typical shift lasts 2-3 hours. Docent shifts are available Wednesday-Sunday, year round.

Event & Field Trip Volunteers
Special event volunteers help with field trips, educational programs, and fundraising events. Duties might include setup and cleanup detail, assisting with crafts & activities with youth groups, selling raffle tickets, and assisting with event check-in. If you have special skills or comfort areas, we will work to match you with the event that best suits your abilities. Time commitment varies, but we typically have 1-6 events per month.

Junior Volunteers
Children ages 6-12 can help us by dressing in period costume during special events; teens 13 and older can train as junior docents or assist with Camp Wornall/Majors. Volunteering is a great way to fulfill school or club community service requirements in a fun and safe environment.

One-time or Special Project Volunteers
We periodically have special projects we need help with, from grounds maintenance to painting. If you have special expertise or skills you’d like to offer, let us know!

Corporate or Organizational Volunteer Opportunities
We enjoy welcoming companies and organizations to our sites to participate in group volunteer activities. Contact us to schedule. Typical opportunities include gardening work, spring cleaning, or supply organization projects.
