During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
The Oberlin Heritage Center seeks a volunteer to help for 1-2 hours each week (or every other week) to help distribute publicity materials locally to promote its busy calendar of events in the community. This volunteer posts flyers on nearby kiosks/bulletin board and delivers flyers to downtown businesses within walking distance. Other light office duties may be included such as photocopying, paper cutting, laminating, folding, and assembling mailings. The ideal candidate is organized, attentive to detail, dependable, flexible, friendly (a good community ambassador for the Heritage Center), and able to walk approximately one-quarter mile on local delivery circuit.

The mission of the Oberlin Heritage Center is to preserve and share Oberlin's unique heritage and to make our community a better place to live, learn, work, and visit.
The Oberlin Heritage Center, a non-profit, membership organization, is our community's historical society and historic preservation organization as well as a complex of historic sites that is accredited by the American Association of Museums.
The Oberlin Heritage Center tour program offers guided tours three days a week, with group tours available by appointment. Our basic tour visits three historic buildings: the 1836 Little Red Schoolhouse, the 1866 Monroe House, and the 1884 Jewett House. Main themes of the tour include life in 1830s-c. 1915 Oberlin, African-American history, the Underground Railroad, women's history, scientific discovery, and missionary, temperance, and other reform movements.
We'll work with your schedule.
