Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Fairmount Water Works, a National Historic Landmark served as a pumping station providing water to the residents and bsuinesses in Philadelphia from 1815 to 1909. Since its opening in 2003, the Interpretive Center's mission has been to promote stewardship of water resources by helping people make responsible decisions about their use of land and water.
The Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center (FWWIC) is seeking individuals from age 15 and up who enjoy educating and working with others. Individuals should enjoy history, engineering, architecture and/or environmental issues. Volunteers will be conducting tours to small groups and other visitors to the Center. There are also a number of events held at the center and volunteers are expected to assist in organizational activities. The center is full of activity and often booked solid by school groups and other organizations. There is also a new exhibit on architecture opening in the Fall of 2010 and volunteers will be heavily involved in promotion and launch activities. The Center is also promoting a Lunch and Learn program that targets activities for Senior citizens. The Lunch and Learn consists of a tour of the Center and a discounted lunch at an area restaurant.
