Share your talents with the National Museum of African American History and Culture. There are a limited number of Behind-the-Scenes Office Volunteer and Program Volunteer positions available for residents of the Washington/Metropolitan area.
Until the museum is built, a fast-paced office has been established in S.W., Washington D.C. Inaugural exhibitions and programs are taking place at other venues in the Washington DC/Metropolitan Area and across the nation.
Office Volunteers work on weekdays between 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. There are no evening or weekend positions available.
Program Volunteers work limited hours during the week and/or at programs on evenings and weekends.
We are seeking bright, friendly, energetic and discreet individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Knowledge of museum work is not required, but a willingness to learn and to pitch in where required is.
Strong volunteer partnerships are essential for the museum to successfully carry out its work. Our volunteer registration is currently closed, however we look forward to working with all potential candidates in the future. To receive an alert when the volunteer program re-opens, please click here.
A tentative offer of a volunteer appointment is conditional, subject to your successful completion of a pre-appointment background investigation for a non-critical sensitive position.
