Volunteer

The Military Women’s Memorial needs your help to #TellHerStory. Volunteers help make our mission possible—from visitor engagement to giving tours to community outreach and special events—volunteers make it happen.

LOCATIONS

Your help is needed at both the Memorial site that is located at the ceremonial entrance to Arlington National Cemetery and at the Foundation headquarters off N. Glebe Road in Arlington, VA.

OPPORTUNITIES

Opportunities at the Memorial site may include visitor services, tour guides, special events, and registration assistance. Volunteers will be needed during normal operational hours as well as some weekends, holidays, and evening events.

Opportunities at the Foundation headquarters may include Collections/Curator, Programs, Community Outreach, Development, and Marketing. Volunteers would be needed during normal operational hours and possibly some weekend and evening work.

Requirements

Volunteers are individuals who are eager to support the MWM mission and enjoy interacting with the general public. We ask that volunteers make a commitment of at least 8 hours per month for at least 6 months.  All volunteers will be required to attend and complete orientation training to be eligible to sign up for opportunities. This daylong training is held at the Memorial and will be regularly scheduled.

  • Opportunity to help tell the stories of women veterans from the American Revolution to present day.
  • Free parking on volunteer days.
  • Semi-annual recognition event and appreciation certificates.
  • Lunch with the Foundation President and Chief of Staff event.
