Volunteer at the Center

We are always looking for volunteers to help staff our center. We welcome all enthusiastic family historians, regardless of experience or expertise. Even if you have no prior experience as a consultant, we can pair you with experienced consultants until you feel comfortable and trained in the consultant role.
We need consultants for any of our shifts, but have special needs during the day on Thursdays and on Tuesday afternoons. We would also like to open the center on Friday mornings in the future.
