Do you enjoy helping people? If your answer is “Yes!” Howard County Tourism & Promotion has expanded its Welcome Center located in the Ellicott City Historic District and we are often seeking volunteers.

Volunteers greet visitors, assist with directions, help identify hotels and itineraries, greet motorcoaches and work with tourism and private sector representatives. You will be trained and have the opportunity to participate in Welcome Center programs such as familiarization tours, new product and consumer service seminars and team meetings.

Volunteers Hours - The Welcome Center program calls for a minimum of four hours but no more than 8 hours a day. The Welcome Center is open 7 days a week and volunteers can participate from one to seven days a week.

Hours of Operation - The Welcome Center is open from 10am to 5pm Monday through Saturday and noon to 5pm on Sunday. Seasonally (April through November) the hours are Monday through Wednesday 10am to 5pm; Thursday through Saturday 10am to 9pm and Sunday Noon to 5pm. The center is open every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas.
