Celebrating 1,077 Volunteers
Volunteers positively impact our lives everyday. The WDM is extremely proud of the dedicated and hardworking volunteers who contribute to our Museum and our communities. In 2018, 1,077 volunteers donated 46,113.25 hours to the WDM locations in Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Saskatoon, Yorkton, and at the Corporate Office.
Volunteers give their time for many reasons – to gain new skills and experience, build confidence, to lend a hand, or to give back and lift up their community. These dedicated individuals have an immeasurable impact on the Museum with their energy, stories and passion for Saskatchewan history.
From those directly in the public eye leading engaging gallery tours or delighting kids with real horse and wagon rides, to those who work behind the scenes caring for artifacts, our volunteers bring and share their unique experience and talents. Without them, messages couldn’t be sent by telegraph, our galleries would be a lot quieter, our steam engines wouldn’t operate, and school programs would be a lot less fun.
The WDM’s doors are always open to new volunteers. Please contact a WDM near you or visit our volunteer page.
April 7 – 13 is National Volunteer Week. Check out some of the things WDM volunteers do to make your visit more enjoyable.
