Ambassador Volunteer at Museum of Surrey

Ambassador Volunteer at Museum of Surrey





Want to be part of something BIG? MoS Ambassadors will roam the museum galleries making visitors feel welcome and supported.


 What might that look like? You might start your shift handing out maps and asking people how they heard about the museum.  You might direct people to onsite demonstrations or fill them in about a cool upcoming event. Next you might answer a question about the dinosaur exhibit or do a brief survey. While you’re chatting, you will probably ask if the visitor has any suggestions about how we can make their experience even better!


 Basically, MOS Ambassadors are the warm welcome to the museum. You’re available if visitors need you and are prepared to work with staff to see how we can improve the visitor experience. You enjoy conversation and smiling.  IF you can speak a second language, that is fabulous. If not, that’s okay too.


 We would love to see your smiling face for four hours per month and are happy to train you so you can represent the museum with confidence.


 If this describes you, please fill out the application form. For more information, email or call 604-502-6461.

Application Process

As of March 16 2020, all City of Surrey recreation centres, ice arenas, culture facilities, pools and libraries have been closed to minimize the risk of transmission of the COVID-19. As a result, many of our programs have been suspended and there are no current volunteer opportunities for the time being. In anticipation of our future volunteer opportunities, we will still be accepting new applications to some of our programs. However, new applications will not be processed until we return to normal business operations.

For more information, please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator at 

Volunteer Opportunities take place at multiple locations, including:

    • Historic Stewart Farm: Education Assistant, Garden/Orchard Volunteer, Heritage Activity Assistant and House Ambassador
