We could not be what we are or accomplish what we do without our volunteers. Join us in pursuing our mission to preserve and promote the arts, history, and culture of Portsmouth and the Seacoast.

Welcome Center Volunteers act as greeters and provide information about Portsmouth Historical Society, our programs, and about Portsmouth as a whole. We’ll help you keep up-to-date on what’s happening in Portsmouth, but having a good knowledge of the area’s cultural destinations, hot spots to eat, and museums & historic houses is important.

A familiarity with technology is important, as you may be trained on our gift shop's point-of-sale system.

Responsibility include, but are not limited to, greeting guests, orienting guests to the Portsmouth Historical Society, assistance with wayfinding around Portsmouth, and gift shop restocking and sales.
