Volunteers or “docents” are dearly appreciated at the Sanguinetti House Museum and Gardens.

Friendliness and a cheerful spirit are the primary requirements.  We ask that volunteers contribute at least 8 hours per month of pure enjoyment.



Here are key areas in need of volunteer support:

  • Museum Greeters and Tour Talk Leaders
    Welcome visitors to the museum and initiate colorful conversations about exhibits. History buffs welcome!
  • Garden Angels
    Provide lite garden care, including raking, watering, weeding and trimming under the leadership of our Garden Coordinator.
  • Candle Dippers & Activity Leaders
    Share your love for candles and crafts with museum visitors by helping with special hands-on activities at the museum.
  • Jack Mellon Gift Shop – Customer Service
    Greet guests, stock shelves, and usher guests to the museum door.  It’s all part of the fun at the historic Jack Mellon Mercantile.
  • Museum Grounds Caregivers
    Perfect for folks who love to turn a wrench for a great cause.
  • Museum Marketeers!
    Promote the museum by dressing-up as historic characters and telling their s­tories while wandering Yuma’s historic downtown.   Spread news of museum activities using social media and videography.
  • Performing Pianists
    Tickle the ivories on our Chickering and Sons square grand piano from the 1800s and dazzle visitors with your classical or ragtime musical favorites.

Your support is needed!
