The Greenbelt Museum is a partnership between the City of Greenbelt of Maryland and the nonprofit 501(c)(3) Friends of the Greenbelt Museum. Volunteers play a vital role at the Museum, the organization could not function without them.  The historic house is largely staffed by volunteers each Sunday whose collective knowledge about Greenbelt's history is immense. Volunteers also guide walking tours, help with children's activities, assist with special events, and perform administrative work.  From the FOGM Board of Directors, to those who only wish to help occasionally, we truly value our volunteers.


Interested in volunteering? Fill out our

VOLUNTEER FORM and we'll get back to you.
