Volunteering

Fort Concho National Historic Landmark serves over 65,000 guests each year with programs, activities, special events, tours, and education programs. We do this with the help of a loyal and talented volunteer corps that assists us throughout the year. Most volunteer opportunities have flexible schedules, and training is provided by fort staff. The time commitment averages four to eight hours a month. Get involved and help us protect our western heritage. To explore a volunteer opportunity and chat with a fort staff member, call us at (325) 481-2646 or email us at admin@fortconcho.com.

Special Events

Our Christmas at Old Fort Concho event (December) and Frontier Day (April) use hundreds of volunteers. Many other events require volunteer assistance.

Education/Living History

Volunteers serve as guides to greet visitors, and assist in educational programs. Our living history volunteers portray the soldiers and civilians of the 1870-1880s for special events, tours, and at out-of-town programs.

Collections

Help us care for the thousands of pieces of history that Fort Concho protects. Volunteers catalog, research, and inventory artifacts of our past.

Library/Archives

The fort holds an impressive Library/Archives where volunteers perform basic research, answer questions, and catalog books and materials.

Maintenance

From time to time, we use volunteers for basic grounds work, litter patrol, window washing, etc. Not terribly glamorous, but it helps the fort maintain its best appearance.

Office/Administrative

Volunteers sometimes help us with mailings and other clerical tasks that arise.
