INSTRUCTION SHEET

 

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum.  Our volunteers play a vital role in the activities at the Reagan Library.  They supplement the staff in important ways with special talents and knowledge that might not be otherwise available.  

 

The next step in applying to become a volunteer is to complete the attached form.  Your answers to the questions will enable us to see where you might best help our program and what activities would be most fulfilling to you.  Many of the questions are self-explanatory.  Others might need a little explanation. 

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION:  Please provide a phone number at which we may reach you Monday through Friday, between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM to follow up on your application.  You also may provide an e-mail address for that purpose.

 

WORK EXPERIENCE:  When listing your work experience, show only the last 10 years of employment.  If you are retired, describe the last 10 years you worked before you retired.   

 

LANGUAGES:  An ability to speak and understand a foreign language most likely will be used to greet and possibly guide foreign visitors.  You would not be expected to explain highly technical aspects of the Reagan Library program.  Reading and translating duties might involve assisting the staff in reading and responding to foreign language correspondence or in translating documents from the holdings of the Reagan Library.

 

SPECIAL SKILLS:  The information you provide will help us to identify which activities at the Reagan Library will most interest you and where you can make the greatest contribution to our program.   Please mark those activities on the list with which you have experience and indicate your level of expertise.  Please add any other activities in which you have experience that you think will fit into the Reagan Library’s program. 

 

AVAILABILITY:  Which days of the week and which hours on those days will you usually be available to volunteer your services?  On occasions, volunteers will be needed in the evening.

 

REFERENCES:  It is important that you provide the names of two individuals who can be contacted to discuss your qualifications for a volunteer position.  They will be informed of the reason for the contact.  Please note that a background check will be necessary, depending on the type of volunteer service you will provide and the kind of access to our facility.  For further information about this step in the application process, please contact Carol Cohea at 805-577-4065.
