Interested in becoming a volunteer? Here are just a few examples of ways you can be a part of the HWF Community

If you would like to learn more about volunteering, please call the office at (254) 753-5166.

Become a Docent: Becoming a docent does not require any prior expertise in architecture, history or museum work, but it does demand commitment and enthusiasm. Expand your horizons and meet energetic people with a common interest. Once you complete docent training, you will share your knowledge with visitors from all over the world! We are anticipating docent training to begin January 2020, but check our docents page for more information.

Family Fundays: Love working with kids? We host monthly Family Fundays at all three of our historic houses where you can help with our crafts and activities that we provide for the families of Waco. These fun, hands on, and educational opportunities are a fun way to teach kids about the history of Waco. Check our website for all of our upcoming Fundays and help us be the storytellers of Waco.

Holiday and Event Opportunities:  Christmas on the Brazos is our event in December each year. We can use volunteers with the ticket table, concessions, runners, set-up, clean up, booths, children’s area, among other areas!  If you are in 8th-12th grade, see our belles and beaus program page!

Office Help: Assist with mail outs and delivery of event flyers

Outdoor Help: We could use your help in planting, upkeep of the grounds, and assistance with other maintenance and landscaping as needed.
