Give the Gift of Time
Historic St. Mary's Mission, Inc. relies not only on donations, tour fees and gift shop sales, but most importantly it relies on the Volunteers who generously give of their time. Volunteers are the backbone of the operation of this historic site and without their generosity it would not be possible to share it with visitors and preserve it for future generations.

*Gift Shop and Tour Guide Volunteers generally choose one shift per week, while some people volunteer once or twice a month.  No one is asked to commit to the full open season of 6 months.

*New Gift Shop and Tour Guide volunteers receive one-on-one interaction and guidance until the person is ready to fill the position.

*All volunteer positions are flexible to meet your interests and skills.

Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy.  You vote in elections once a year, however when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.
