What It Means to Volunteer

The Museum of the Grand Prairie is one of a handful of downstate museums which has maintained accreditation with the American Alliance of Museums for 50 years. Our success is not possible without the dedication and support from volunteers.

Volunteers may have the opportunity to be involved in many phases of the museum's operation. You may have the opportunity to help us:

  • manage collections
  • create exhibits
  • run school programs (even be a school marm!)
  • create and help with public programs
  • do research
  • even fundraise!

We invite YOU to join our team and share in our mission! You will find that volunteering at the Museum of the Grand Prairie brings with it an opportunity to meet people you might not otherwise have known. But even more importantly, you will share in our leadership role of assisting with the education of our children and the teaching of local history.

To learn more about becoming a volunteer, how to fill out an application, or for more information about specific projects, call 1-217-586-3360 or e-mail the CCFPD staff, volunteer@ccfpd.org
