Fort Concho serves thousands of guests each year with education programs, special events, tours, and more. We do this with the help of a loyal and talented volunteer corps that is invested in helping us fulfill our mission. If you are interested in making a difference in the community through volunteering, Fort Concho offers three service areas that are sure to fit your goals, interests and schedule!
Education volunteers serve in our Docents Program or as part of one of our *Living History units. Dressed in period clothing, they portray 19th century soldiers or civilians and interpret the site’s history during special events, educational programs, or tour groups.
Preservation volunteers work in the Archives or Collections departments. They work alongside fort staff to research, catalog, and inventory artifacts and resource materials that serve in exhibitions and program development.
Support volunteers assist in a number of capacities. From special events to mail outs and maintenance, support volunteers ensure Fort Concho can provide a variety of programs, events, and services to the public.
