Volunteers are at the heart of Salisbury House and Gardens. They provide year-round support for many of our programs as well as assist with onsite projects and maintenance. As a volunteer, you will get a behind-the-scenes look at Salisbury House while ensuring guests receive a world-class, cultural experience. Everything from our largest events to daily activities are volunteer-based and we strive to provide a unique, positive experience for every volunteer.
Volunteer opportunities include our interpreter program (tour guides), assisting at public program events, lawn and garden maintenance, various service projects, and occasional opportunities for special volunteer roles.
If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out an application and email it to the Grants and Community Engagement Manager. Some positions require a meeting with staff before an applicant is able to volunteer. Please contact Salisbury House at 515-274-1777 for further information.
