There are many opportunities to become an active part of the lighthouse team. You can provide tours at the lighthouse and museum, sell souvenirs and gifts in our Keeper’s Closet Gift Shop, teach school children about the lighthouse during educational tours, support special fundraising and other special events, or reach out to the community to spread the word about the lighthouse. All training will be provided, as well as mentoring until you are comfortable in your role.

You must be a U.S. Citizen and will be required to undergo a background check in order to be able to get to the lighthouse, which is on the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.  The on-boarding process also includes interviewing, training, and mentoring.

Learn More About Us

Lighthouse ownership was transferred from the United States Coast Guard to the United States Air Force on December 14, 2000. The Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation Inc. was established on May 20, 2002.  Control of the Cape and lighthouse transitioned to the United States Space Force in 2020.

The purpose of the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation is to assist the Space Launch Delta 45 in preserving, protecting, and interpreting the lighthouse and its historical significance to the Florida Space Coast, State of Florida, and our Nation. The Foundation supports the Space Force in the development and operation of a lighthouse program that informs the public and commemorates the historical activities of the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. The Foundation is charged with promoting the lighthouse through education initiatives, advertisements, brochures, publicity, community events and tours.

The Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors, a group of ten to eighteen members who meet monthly. The goal of the Foundation is to recreate the lighthouse community as it was when lighthouse keepers and their families lived and worked there and to share the history of the lighthouse with the public.

Future Plans

The Foundation is currently raising funds to rebuild the three Keepers’ Cottages to complete the historical integrity of the original configuration of buildings which surrounded the lighthouse. The lighthouse keepers’ homes were destroyed after 76 years of existence. The first cottage has been rebuilt and houses a museum and gift shop. The next cottage to be built will be an education and activity center. The final building will be a replica cottage depicting the lives of the Keepers and their families over the years.
