Learn. Engage. Contribute.

Volunteers at the Airborne & Special Operations Museum play an essential role in furthering the museum’s mission by helping to share our rich collections, exhibitions, research, and educational programming with the public. We are always looking for dynamic, motivated individuals to join our team.

Our volunteers are unique. They help share the history of the United States Army’s airborne and special operations units from their own personal military service and home front experiences. However, you do not need to be affiliated with the military to participate in our volunteer program. Our volunteers include proud military retirees, veterans, spouses, active duty, students and many others from our community.

Learn.

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum is a very unique place to learn about and engage with the living history of the Army’s airborne and special operation units. The museum provides a memorable opportunity for all to learn, relive, share, and understand the proud military history of the airborne and special operations soldiers, from 1940 to the present.

For those who are looking to develop their skills in a professional work environment, the museum also offers unique internship opportunities with the Museum Departments and its non-profit Foundation. Opportunities in areas such as curatorial, special events, marketing, and fundraising are available to students working on their university degree, post graduate work, and young professionals.

Engage.

Our volunteers serve as important ambassadors for our mission, greeting visitors from near and far at our museum’s front desk. Volunteers help provide information, answer questions, and ensure safety of our visitors, displays, and artifacts throughout the galleries. Our volunteer program provides a unique opportunity for volunteers to engage with visitors, share stories, and help them have a meaningful experience.

Contribute.

Join our community to help make a difference. No matter how much or how little you can offer, your time with us as a volunteer is greatly appreciated and it truly makes the difference for our organization and our community at large. Every bit counts!

It is located in Historic Downtown Fayetteville on the corner of Bragg Boulevard and Hay Street, adjacent to the city’s Freedom Memorial Park and the recently built North Carolina Veteran’s Park.
