JANM Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Museum and fill many roles within the organization. We’re seeking public-facing volunteers to be a welcoming presence helping greet visitors, provide membership information, and, as needed, direct visitors to our core and temporary exhibition galleries. Our volunteers will assist with new and renewal memberships in support of our Membership and Visitor Services departments.

About Japanese American National Museum


100 North Central Avenue, Volunteer Office, Los Angeles, CA 90012, US

Mission Statement

The mission of the Japanese American National Museum is to promote understanding and appreciation of America's ethnic and cultural diversity by preserving, interpreting and sharing the experiences of Japanese Americans. We share the story of Japanese Americans because we honor our nation's diversity. We believe in the importance of remembering our history to better guard against the prejudice that threatens liberty and equality in a democratic society. We strive as a world-class museum to provide a voice for Japanese Americans and a forum that enables all people to explore their own heritage and culture. We promote continual exploration of the meaning and value of ethnicity in our country through programs that preserve individual dignity, strengthen our communities, and increase respect among all people. We believe that our work will transform lives, create a more just America and, ultimately, a better world.


Based in Los Angeles’ historic Little Tokyo neighborhood, it has a nation-wide focus and international base of support. The Japanese American National Museum is located adjacent to the Metro Gold Line in the Little Tokyo/Arts district of downtown Los Angeles, a neighborhood that has experienced an exciting revitalization with diverse new restaurants, shops, luxury apartments, and nightlife.

An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution and AAM accredited, the National Museum ( www.janm.org) is recognized as one of the nations’ premier cultural museums. In 2010, the Japanese American National Museum was awarded America’s highest honor for museum, the National Medal from the IMLS.

We are an American institution that researches, interprets and presents the culture, arts and history of those of Japanese ancestry in the United States.
