I have volunteered for many organizations, and the St Augustine Lighthouse is the best. I feel like part of the staff from the first day I started volunteering to today, many years later.

Three months in as a new volunteer, and I feel so welcome. The staff and volunteer corps are amazing in their commitment to the common goal of excellence and shared love of the Lighthouse legacy and history.

Having been a volunteer many times in my life and volunteering now, I can honestly say the Lighthouse is the one place I truly feel appreciated.
