Donate your time

If you’ve clicked on this page, then volunteering might be something you are interested in. Learn a new skill, make new friends, and enjoy helping us make Malta’s unique historical legacy and its living culture more accessible to everyone, everywhere, when you volunteer with Heritage Malta.

Whatever your interests, whatever your age, we have an opportunity for you to make a difference. Answer a question from a curious visitor in one of our museums, do some gardening in one of our nature sites, and help catalogue and reorder one of our archives. Work in admin, help create a social media story or assist the carpentry team. Volunteer with the digitisation unit, run a craft workshop for families, participate in the protection of underwater cultural heritage, help out in one of our retail outlets or muck in cleaning ancient pottery shards. There are hundreds of volunteer roles to showcase your talents and contribute to Heritage Malta’s mission.

Do something you might have never done before, gain practical experience, become more employable and bump up your CV.

Alternatively, you may be recently retired with extra time on your hands. Keep mentally and physically active with one of our volunteer roles. Our agency can only benefit from your life and work experience. Help us tell the story of Malta.

Volunteering hours are flexible to suit your lifestyle. You might want to explore different volunteer roles before settling on one that fits. We also offer work internships and placements that entail more commitment. Have fun, network and socialise whilst contributing to safeguarding our heritage for future generations.

Some of our volunteer benefits include –

  • HM Membership card
  • Reductions on HM publications
  • Invitations to HM cultural tours
  • Discounts on HM events
  • A certificate of your Volunteering profile to show to future employers/education providers

Engaging in a volunteer opportunity is a rewarding and meaningful experience. Share your passion and enthusiasm and leave your imprint.
