Lighthouse programs could not function without the generous assistance provided by volunteers.  Being a volunteer allows one to join others in the community to ‘give back’ and have fun at the same time.  The commitment can be as little as a few hours a month. 

Volunteers serve in a variety of areas, as docents, gift shop clerks, preservationists, historians, website editors, etc.  The type of volunteer work one does depends on the volunteer’s preference, abilities, and lighthouse needs.

To learn more about becoming a docent, leave a message for Nancy McDowell, Public Works Department, at (831) 648-3176.  Individual training is offered during lighthouse hours with experienced docents. Additional training begins annually in January and is run by the Central Coast Lighthouse Keepers a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting lighthouses on the California Central Coast.  Training is conducted in the evenings at California State Parks Headquarters in Monterey.

Gift ShopTo learn more about volunteering for all other lighthouse functions email info@pointpinoslighthouse.org with your contact information and questions.  The lighthouse would especially benefit from those who would like to (1) help run the gift shop or (2) perform hands-on restoration work.  No experience is necessary, but highly desirable.

For information about volunteering in the areas of restoration, archives and website, please email info@pointpinoslighthouse.org .

Another way to get involved is through becoming a member of The Heritage Society of Pacific Grove.  Membership is inexpensive and supports the lighthouse.  By becoming a member you will receive the society newsletter containing information on society events and lighthouse updates.
