Become a Volunteer
Become part of the Comic-Con experience year-round!
Our volunteers are the heart and face of the Comic-Con Museum. They are our boots on the ground, guiding our guests and creating an unforgettable popular arts museum experience. Serving in numerous key roles, each of our dedicated volunteers contributes to the museum their own expertise, voice, and passion.
In turn, the Comic-Con Museum is dedicated to the growth of our volunteers. We provide exclusive learning opportunities, including popular arts deep dives, administrative support, youth education, public speaking, and interpersonal skills development.
It’s an invaluable, unique experience, elevated by a spirit of community. When you become a Comic-Con Museum volunteer, you soon realize that we are more than a museum. We are a team of diverse people brought together by our love for comics and all things popular arts!

School in the Park
The Comic-Con Museum is proud to be a participating museum in the School in the Park education program which provides opportunities for students to learn in new stimulating environments in Balboa Park institutions. Through this program, students from the City Heights neighborhood of San Diego engage in a project-based game design curriculum created by the Comic-Con Museum Education Center.
Feeding San Diego
Thanks to support from the David C. Copley Foundation, the Comic-Con Museum collaborated with Feeding San Diego, the county’s leading hunger-relief and food rescue organization, in an effort to rally local students around their mission to end hunger through food rescue.
We invited K-12 students across San Diego County to design their own hero character who helps end hunger through food rescue, the act of recovering surplus or imperfect food from food donors before it goes to waste.
The winning submissions, Hunger Halter and Demeter, were brought to life by cosplayer and costume designer Allan Lavigne and put on display at the Comic-Con Museum during Comic-Con 2022.
Hunger Halter and Demeter now do the important work of championing efforts in the community to support those who need a little extra help with food assistance and celebrate those who take action and educate our community in the importance of food rescue.
