The Mission Building
The Mission Building was once a Chinese Community Church where newly immigrated Chinese workers could find a warm bed, hot food, and a place to learn English at the turn of the century. In the 1990s, the building, which had been long abandoned, was slatted for demolition. Local Chinese community member formed the San Diego Chinese Historical Society and saved the building that is now home of the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum.

Front Desk Volunteers will welcome visitors from all over the world. We have two gallery spaces that host rotating art, culture, and historical exhibits that focus on China and Chinese America.

Front Desk Volunteers will be trained in greeting visitors and selling admissions and Museum shop items.

Front Desk Volunteers will develop public speaking skills, customer service skills, and inventory management skills. We welcome volunteers willing to put their best face forward on behalf of the Museum.
