The Museum of the Palestinian People is currently recruiting in-person volunteers to welcome visitors with in-person tours of our location in Washington, DC, and virtual and in-person volunteers to support its online and in-person programming. The museum is currently open to the public on Saturdays from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The museum also offers arts and culture events and programs that relate to the Palestinian people, such as cooking classes, book talks, documentary screenings, interviews, and embroidery workshops.

Volunteers participate in every aspect of the event planning process, including creating concepts for the events, writing invitations, coordinating with special guests, running the events on Zoom or in person, and helping with other technical or administrative needs.

Volunteers who train as docents regularly give tours on Saturdays during museum hours. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds and walks of life to join our team, and especially encourage Palestinian Americans to inquire about opportunities to docent.

As a volunteer-driven organization, the museum seeks candidates that are interested in developing knowledge of the museum and its collection, eager to share Palestinian history and culture with visitors, and are looking to join a tight-knit community of energetic, committed volunteers.

If you would like to learn more, please be sure to include some details in the comment section about your particular interest in this role.

About MUSEUM OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE

Location:

1900 18TH ST NW, WASHINGTON, DC 20009, US

Mission Statement

We share the rich history, vibrant arts & culture, and spirit of the Palestinian people.

Description

The Museum of the Palestinian People is the first museum in Washington D.C. devoted to exploring and celebrating Palestinian history, arts and culture. It started in 2015 as a traveling exhibit, visiting over 50 locations across the country, and has now found a home in the heart of the nation’s capital. By sharing the stories of the Palestinian people with those who walk through our doors, we invite the world to discover what unites us all.

The museum:

  • Shares Palestinian stories through historic artifacts, personal narratives, and artistic expression to transcend separation, fragmentation, and boundaries;
  • Connects Palestinians in the United States, Palestine, and the diaspora with each other to evoke pride and dignity, and to impart this to future generations; and
  • Partners with other institutions and connects with broader audiences committed to our shared humanity.
