Volunteering at the Museum
Volunteers are a vital part of accomplishing our mission at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum. To register as a volunteer, you will need to submit a completed Volunteer Application, Waiver and Background Check Form. Background checks are an important step in ensuring the safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers and collections.
- For general volunteer requests, we will only accept applications for the open positions listed below.
- For internship requests, we will process these on a case-by-case basis based on available internship positions. Because these positions fill up quickly, we recommend submitting your request 2-4 months in advance of the semester during which you would like to intern.
