Events and Program Volunteer - Want to be involved but have limited availability? This is the job for you - let us know if you can be on call to assist with decorating or as a program or tour leader.
Archiving Assistant - Learn the nuts and bolts of the collection development process of the History Center so that you can build a legacy of resources for future researchers! Learn to archive photographs or artifacts while teamed with an experienced volunteer.

An artistic eye, problem solving skills, clear communication skills and work with others are necessary talents for this volunteer position.
