The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, accredited by the American Association of Museums, is an educational institution of the Commonwealth of Virginia and administers two living-history museums: Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown Center. The Foundation's mission is to educate and to promote awareness of Virginia's role in the creation of the United States of America.


Volunteers help to greet and orient museum visitors, interpret in the galleries and lead orientation tours, assist interpreters in the living history areas, help gift shop customers, provide support for special events, conduct visitor research, maintain and sail the Jamestown Settlement ships, accomplish curatorial and clerical projects, and work behind the scenes to support the museums in many other ways. n return for donating their time, the Foundation's core volunteers receive complementary admission to Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center for themselves and their family; 20% discount at the Foundation's museum gift shops; 50% discount at the Jamestown Settlement Cafe, and other benefits
