There are many ways to volunteer for Key West Home Tours

The success of Old Island Restoration Foundation and its mission relies largely on the participation of volunteers.  There are lots of ways you can participate and all volunteers can earn free tickets to the tours, among other perks, like our Kickoff Party and end of season Volunteer Party. It’s fun too!

Over the course of each season, about 300 people volunteer to help make the Key West Home Tours happen. Lend us a little of your time and be a docent for one or more of our Home Tours. Each house requires from 5 to 15 docents for a three hour period to take tickets and describe the home to visitors.

Join a committee and help plan annual events and fundraisers, prepare mailings to the membership,  deliver brochures and posters or even volunteer to docent at The Oldest House Museum.
