Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The African American Museum in Philadelphia collects and preserves art and artifacts and, through exhibitions and programs, interprets the history and stories of African Americans and those of the African Diaspora. We enrich the lives of all visitors, especially children and youth, using education to empower them through experiences that will enlighten them culturally and intellectually. We are a gathering place for the community, a forum for broader community engagement and a partner for collaborations with historical and cultural institutions.
When individuals understand their history and culture, it empowers them to fulfill their potential and contribute to the larger society. Our vision is of a world where African Americans, those of the African Diaspora and all touched by the Museum, are inspired by a greater understanding of themselves through art, culture and history. Our vision is of a museum of local, national and international importance; one recognized for excellence and innovation in museum practice and programs.
