The Historic Pensacola Ambassador program is a volunteer corps of individuals who give of their time and talents to help sustain our mission.
The opportunities are numerous at the University of West Florida Historic Trust—from living history to archival collections. Are you interested in art and education? Volunteer opportunities are at the Pensacola Museum of Art. Do you love talking with people? Why not volunteer at one of our museum locations. Do you love researching the history of our city? Why not volunteer in our research room assisting patrons in their research. Or, is cataloging collections more your desire? Our Hilton-Green Research Room has many opportunities for those who love tangible history—the papers, the books, and the everyday items that soon become a part of history.
You give us your time and we will give you the history of our city. Do you have one day a week, a month? Whatever time you have available, we have a place for you. Snowbirds welcome.
Join our volunteer ranks, and make new friends in the process.
