The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center is looking for Museum Docents to work in various public areas throughout the museum. The time commitment is very reasonable, only two shifts per month for a shift of 3-4 hours each day. We need more volunteers on the weekends, but there are some opportunities during the week as well.
