Volunteer / Internship / Employment

Volunteers and Interns help keep the Frances Willard House Museum and Archives running. Would you like to help us in the garden? Work with us on community outreach, or giving tours of the home? Maybe you’d like to learn about event planning, restoration, museum collections, or archives? Even if you’d just like to help us out with cleaning art glass windows or dusting objects in the collection, the Frances Willard House has a place for you to volunteer.

Internships are available to those college students whose school offers class credit for working a significant amount of time on a project.  There are opportunities in both the Museum and in the Archives.
