Volunteer Positions at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center

The U.S. Capitol Visitor Center is looking for energetic and committed individuals who are interested in becoming volunteers at the Capitol Visitor Center in a variety of activities including assisting visitors as well as behind the scenes tasks.

The Capitol Visitor Center, which opened on December 2, 2008, serves as the public entry to the U.S. Capitol. Since that time, the Visitor Center has welcomed more than 2 million visitors to the Capitol for a variety of events including tours, visits to the Exhibition Hall, and Congressional meetings.

Volunteers will assist in various departments including Visitor Services, Public Programs, Special Events, and Gift Shops. Some tasks will require volunteers to interact directly with the public, occasionally work outdoors, work with children, or stand for long periods of time. Volunteers will be asked to make a commitment of a minimum of 100 hours of service over the course of a year or approximately 8 hours a month.

Candidates will be required to successfully complete a background check performed by the U.S. Capitol Police before being accepted into the CVC Volunteer Program.
