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.
Guide elementary school students through pioneer arts and crafts activities during field trips to Job Carr Cabin Museum. Help them imagine what life was like on the Oregon Trail. You'll assist Museum staff in providing a fun, interactive field trip experience for students in grades 2-5.
We have schools scheduled to visit the Museum on most Mondays beginning 2/27/2020 through 6/15/2020. Volunteers are needed 9:30am - 12:15pm; this includes set-up and clean-up. We'll provide information and training to help you engage small groups of children in hands-on activities and games, interpreting frontier life. Field trip activities may include designing quilts, making butter, toy demonstrations, hopscotch, gunny sack races, and more! No experience necessary.
We welcome volunteers of all ages, interests and skills levels. Volunteers with background in education, history and/or customer service are strongly encouraged to apply. You must be reliable, with excellent attendance, promptness and courteous behavior.
All volunteers must complete a volunteer application form and successfully pass a security background check. http://www.jobcarrmuseum.org/

Our mission is to bring Tacoma's birthplace to life through interactive learning for elementary students and our community.
The Job Carr Cabin Museum is a replica of Job Carr's log cabin, originally built in 1864/65, as the first permanent non-native residence in Tacoma. The Museum houses interpretive historical displays and artifacts from Tacoma's early days. Educational history programs and tours are provided for school children, educators, history buffs, community residents and visitors to our city.
We'll work with your schedule.
