Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to encourage, foster, and assist Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas (NSMLV) programs and activities by volunteering, fundraising, and promoting community interest in the museum.
The Friends of Nevada State Museum Las Vegas created Bus Buddies to bring 4th graders to the museum. It was so successful that the State of Nevada funded a 2-year pilot project based on our program to expand the effort. We received a Nevada Humanities grant to update "Traveling Trunks" that bring museum artifacts to schools. The Friends sponsor presentations on a wide variety of topics such as Las Vegas showgirls, fossils, quilts, etc. We have a crowdsourcing project to transcribe a card catalog (www.nsmlv.org/omeka). The museum WIFI is provided by HyperNetworks in partnership with the Friends.
