This original Victorian home on the Gorge waterway in Victoria, British Columbia built in 1861, holds one of North America’s largest collections of Victoriana. The gardens contain some of the original heritage roses and hollyhocks. Tour the house and stay for afternoon tea on the lawn.http://pointellicehouse.ca/
Volunteer Position Description
Have you ever wanted to work inside a heritage home? Do you love being surrounded by history? Do you love helping tourists and locals alike discover Victoria’s great history?
If you answered yes to any of these questions you should consider volunteering with us at Point Ellice House. Here at Point Ellice House we love to bring history alive through our historical interpreters and our afternoon teas. As a volunteer your responsibilities would range from instructing visitors on how to use our audio tours to greeting people as they enter our historic site. Other duties would include giving brief tours (if comfortable), working in the Visitor’s Centre to greet guests, and light clerical work.
If working with food is more your style we have a kitchen that serves lovely afternoon teas. Kitchen volunteers will be needed to bu empty plates to the kitchen and help prepare some food.
Volunteers are a valued part of the team here at Point Ellice House and we appreciate any time you can give.
Point Ellice House is open from 11 am – 4 pm Thursday to Monday between May and September each year. There is no time requirement for volunteering and you can change your schedule from week to week as needed.
