Volunteers work with the public and behind the scenes, all to deliver our mission of using aviation as a gateway for people to embrace adventure and innovation while using tools of science to explore how the physical world works and how the dream of flight is made into reality. Depending on their skills and interests, volunteers serve as docents, public programming facilitators, and librarians and even work on exhibit fabrication and aircraft restoration projects. Review our available volunteer roles to join the AMK crew and complete the application below. If you would like more information, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at or by calling 859-231-1219.
