University of West Florida Historic Trust seeks volunteers

The University of West Florida Historic Trust will host two volunteer fairs during National Volunteer Week for individuals interested in joining its Historic Pensacola Ambassador team. Volunteers are needed to help the non-profit organization fulfill its mission to collect, preserve, interpret and share the history of Northwest Florida.

Each session will cover an overview of the organization and volunteer opportunities, which include museum store attendants, living history re-enactors, tour guides, exhibit assistants and curatorial staff assistants, caring for artifacts. The first session will be held Wednesday, April 13 at 10:30 a.m. at the Voices of Pensacola presented by Gulf Power, 117 E. Government St. The second will be held on Thursday, April 14 at 5:30 p.m. in the T.T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida Museum, 330 S. Jefferson St. Both sessions are free and refreshments will be served.

Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older. Volunteer time commitments are flexible and based on volunteer availability. Students, retirees and working professionals welcomed.
