Want to Get Involved? We’re Looking for Volunteers!
Sandy Springs has a vibrant past and an exciting future. You can share in both by volunteering! Make new friends, contribute to the community, educate the public, gain marketable experience, sharpen valued skills, and find an outlet for your creative energy or a worthwhile activity for your retirement.
Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park has many areas available for volunteers, from special events, like the Farmers Market and the Sandy Springs Festival, to maintaining our beautiful grounds, to educating Sandy Springs residents about our history through research, collecting stories, greeting museum visitors and more.
Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park utilizes hundreds of volunteers every year. The largest event where the most volunteers are needed is the Sandy Springs Festival.
We would love to meet you!
The Sandy Springs Museum is at the core of our mission to preserve the history of Sandy Springs. Volunteer positions include historic research, working with museum collections, and/or participating in our Oral History program, by learning to cultivate and record oral histories from Sandy Springs. Information packet is provided and volunteers are paired with an oral history veteran to learn the ins and outs of this position. We also need Museum Museum Greeter / Docent (training is provided).
The Heritage Sandy Springs Farmers market supports our mission of outreach and community. Farmers and small businesses come from all over to give our city a taste of farm life with fresh vegetables, meats, eggs and much more. Volunteers are stationed at the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park’s booth to sell water and lemonade and answer visitor questions.
Our park and garden spaces support our mission of stewarding the Sandy Springs Society Entertainment Lawn, our gardens, a nature walk, and the original spring of Sandy Springs. Volunteers use their horticulture and gardening skills for garden planning, planting and cultivation.
This annual free summer concert series supports our mission to offer fun events and outreach to our community and is held one Sunday a month from May to September. Volunteer positions include help set up, greet attendees, sell beverages, direct parking, and collect donations.
The Sandy Springs Festival, a tradition since 1984, supports our mission of culture, education, outreach and events. This is by far the largest event of the year for Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park and requires the most volunteers needed. Volunteers are needed at the Sandy Springs Lightning 5K/10K Race, the “districts” of the Festival, including children’s, cultural, food, historic, music and more.
