Volunteers at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum play a critical role in our mission to cultivate a better understanding of the Presidency, American history, and important issues of public policy.
A Native Texas Park guide explains the Monarch butterfly migration through the Dallas area to visitors.
From a Museum docent bringing history to life for visitors from all over the world or a Native Texas Park guide explaining Mrs. Laura Bush’s longstanding commitment to environmental conservation to an Education docent giving a presentation about the Founding Fathers to Camp43 students or an Archives volunteer digitizing a time-sensitive FOIA request, each volunteer makes a difference.
Due to the sensitive nature of Presidential materials, volunteers must be at least 16 years old, a U.S. Citizen or holder of a permanent resident card/A1 Diplomatic Visa, successfully pass a background check, and sign a confidentiality agreement. Other requirements:
- Make 1 year commitment.
- Able to learn new skills.
- Work > 4.5 hours per week on non-paid basis unless serving as volunteer or docent substitute.
- Proficiency in Microsoft Suite programs a plus.
- For some duties, able to lift > 50 pounds.
- For some duties, able to stand for long periods of time and climb ladders.

A group of Charter Docents gathered at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in the summer of 2017 for a special thank you by President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush. These volunteers were part of the first orientation class on Jan. 17, 2013, and participated in the Bush Center dedication on Apr. 25, 2013.
