Volunteer application

Please note: Applications are accepted at all times but assignments are made only as the need arises. Volunteers must be 18 or older and able to pass a background check.

During 2014 most of our exhibition space will be closed to allow us to expand and improve our galleries.  Because of this, volunteer and internship opportunities will be limited while we are under construction.  The areas most affected are Museum Collections, Manuscripts & Archives, and the Education Department. 

Please fill out the application below and a VHS staff member will contact you about volunteer opportunities.
