Volunteer

As an integral part of the Sandy Spring community, we here at Sandy Spring Museum want to build community with you. The museum thrives because of a strong network of people who share a passion for improving the lives of others, contributing to the common good, preserving the history of Sandy Spring, and building a bright future.

There are many volunteer opportunities that require a variety of skills, interests, and schedules; the Strawberry Festival is in need of over 100 volunteers each year and dozens of committed individuals are volunteers and members of the Sandy Spring Museum Garden Club.  You can also volunteer at the Nanty Narking Nearly Nine K Run that is held on Saturday, May 6.

Ladson Research Library

Explore and expand your knowledge in the museum’s research library and archives, full of resources and stories on local history. The library also presents a volunteer opportunity for trained individuals to answer research questions and provide access to documents and photographs in the archives.

“Volunteering at Sandy Spring Museum is a fun, rewarding and enriching experience. The warm and welcoming staff makes all the difference; they keep me in mind for opportunities in my area of interest and generously recognize my efforts. I am always proud to have the privilege and opportunity to give back to my community through the unique volunteering activities at Sandy Spring Museum.” – Nan M.
