Volunteers make it possible!
As a nonprofit organization, we depend on community volunteers to help us accomplish our mission of teaching about President Wilson and his era through interpretive tours, exhibits, programs and the preservation of archives, artifacts, gardens and historic structures. Volunteers impact our entire organization by helping with both short-term and long-term projects.
Who can volunteer?
Volunteer positions are open to individuals age 16 and older who meet the qualifications outlined below, without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, or disability.
What's in it for me?
Volunteers have access to the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library in a way that is not offered to the general public. We provide orientation training, flexible scheduling, a subscription to the Wilson Review, and ongoing learning opportunities through special lectures open only to volunteers. If you help at least 12 hours a month, you also receive a 20% discount in the President's Shop and free admission to the museum for you and your family. You will also have the opportunity to meet and talk with others who share your fascination with history!
Where can I volunteer?
Our staff will work with you to find a volunteer placement that best matches your interests and availability. For additional information or to request a volunteer application, please contact Karen Dodson - Administrative Officer, (540) 885-0897 ex. 113. Unless otherwise noted, help is needed from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.
