The DAR Museum is recruiting education volunteers to assist with education programs for children and adults.

Special Events:

We hold a large event about every other month and need a lot of volunteers for each one. The events coming up in 2018 are:

  • March 3, Women’s History Day
  • April 21, Historical Tea
  • August 4, World’s Fair
  • October 18, Murder Mystery Evening
  • October 27, Victorian Halloween Party
  • December 1, Historical Tea

Education volunteers will prepare materials before the event, facilitate activities and craft projects, and help address visitor questions as needed.

Girl Scout Programs: The DAR Museum offers Girl Scout programming for Brownies and Juniors. Programs are 1.5 - 2 hours and include discussion, games, a tour, and a craft making project. An pre-written outline for the program is provided. Girl Scout events are held once a month on Saturdays.

Past experience working with children is encouraged. Successful applicants should have an interest in history and/or decorative arts. This position requires flexibility, timeliness, creativity and an enthusiasm for working with the public. Applicants may be asked to have a background check.

Volunteers are self-scheduled, thus the time commitment varies accordingly to volunteer availability. Positions available immediately.
