Volunteer Memberships

Volunteers will be eligible to join the Field House once they have met the requirements of the Volunteer Services Department and have completed six weeks of active volunteer work. When these requirements are met, the volunteer may apply for membership to the Field House, available at the same rate as for employees. The Field House will verify the status of the volunteer and will receive activity reports from Volunteer Services. Remember, a volunteer must contribute monthly hours in order to remain in an active status and to maintain their Field House membership. Please call the Field House directly at (409) 772-1304 for membership information. Mary Moody is the contact person with volunteer services, and she can be reached at 409-772-2549.
