Walt Whitman Birthplace Association

  • 24 people are interested

We are currently seeking individuals with an interest in poetry, the arts, biography, history, education, and museum studies to volunteer at the Walt Whitman Birthplace, a historic site and literary landmark dedicated to Walt Whitman's life, spirit, and legacy.

Volunteer Tour Guides provide the public with the history of the Walt Whitman Birthplace and guide guests through the home. Volunteers are also needed to assist with special events, high teas, school programs, and group tours. We provide training and resources to learn more about Walt Whitman and the house in which he was born.

WWBA values its volunteers and depends on the generosity of individuals to help us maintain our mission to preserve and promote the legacy of Walt Whitman.

If you would like to volunteer at least twice a month on weekends between 11am and 4pm, you might enjoy being a tour guide. If you have availability on week days and evenings, you may be interested in assisting with events, school programs, and group tours. We have many different volunteer positions available and aim to match people with their interests for the best possible volunteer experience.

Please reply with your resume and cover letter, describing why you are interested in volunteering. You may also email director[at]waltwhitman[dot]org for additional information and to set up an interview.

Thank you.
