The museum personnel talked to students about the many activities available for student volunteers at the museum and also networked with a number of non-profit organizations in Lee and Collier County who might want to volunteer for special events with the museum. Several FGCU students have already come to LaBelle Heritage Museum with volunteering at the museum as their primary purpose.
LaBelle Heritage Museum also welcomes students from FSW State College's Hendry/Glades Center and LaBelle High School who need a local venue to complete their school's Service-Learning requirements. Hendry/Glades Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the Honor Society of the Community College, are already scheduled to volunteer with the museum during the 50th Annual LaBelle Swamp Cabbage Festival this coming February.
The museum also welcomes individual members of the community looking for an opportunity to donate their services and learn more about LaBelle, its history, and its heritage at the same time.
