Heritage Association Volunteers

School Marm TalkingVolunteers are our ambassadors and a key component to the success of our programming at the Frisco Heritage Center and Museum.

Our volunteers tell us they have gotten to know their own community better through volunteering, and that they enjoy making new friends and sharing Frisco’s history with guests from around the world. Because they are special, Heritage Association volunteers receive invitations to museum educational programs, special tours, exhibit openings, a gift shop discount, and an annual volunteer appreciation event.

Who Can Be a Volunteer?

The Heritage Association’s volunteer program is open to men and women eighteen years of age or older.
