Become a volunteer
Volunteers are vital in supporting the Melbourne Holocaust Museum’s programs. Each year more than 160 people donate their time to assist educators guiding school children through the museum, cataloguing the collections, undertaking research for exhibitions, assisting with fundraising activities, helping with administrative tasks, preparing educational material and assisting with oral testimony.

Why volunteer?
As a volunteer, you will share your expertise, develop new skills and knowledge, be part of a supportive team, join a welcoming community, contribute to the visitor experience and gain experience in a relevant field.

Who can volunteer?
Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and communities, have varied levels of skills and knowledge and a desire to further the goals of the Melbourne Holocaust Museum. Our volunteers include students, job seekers, recent graduates, interns and retirees.

How do I become a volunteer?
To become a volunteer you must:

  • Be 17 years of age or older
  • Agree to a National Police Check
  • Obtain a Victorian Working with Children Check
  • Commit to a minimum of one day per month
  • Sign an Agreement Form to commit to the values and policies of Museums Victoria

Depending on the nature of the voluntary work available, it may be recommended that you undertake the Holocaust Education Course conducted semester one each year at the MHM.
