The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Location of the National Archives at New York City.
Museum docents work in our learning center, welcome center, and throughout our exhibit and public spaces. They greet visitors, answer general questions, facilitate learning and discovery, and provide tours of the National Archives. They inform visitors about current exhibits and educational programs provided by the National Archives. They share their knowledge about National Archives documents, our exhibits, and the architectural features of the Custom House.
Our current volunteer hours are Monday through Friday 10:00 to 5:00 and the first Saturday of each month 10:00 to 4:00. We ask potential volunteers to commit to at least 6 months of service.
