Volunteer

Do you want to be part of history?

Volunteers have always been the backbone of the Dunn County Historical Society's work. As the museum grows, with more programs and exhibits, we're looking for enthusiastic people like you to join us in preserving and sharing the rich history of Dunn County.

You'll have the opportunity to share your skills or build new ones, learn about local history, and meet people who share your passion for Dunn County and its residents.

 

Who can volunteer?

We can accommodate a wide range of interests and abilities.

 

Can kids volunteer?

Children need to be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Sixteen- to  seventeen-year-olds can volunteer without an adult, but must have permission from their guardian.

Can my group volunteer?

Yes! Whether you want to do one-time or ongoing projects, we can work with you. Fill out the group application and staff will be in touch.

Start by filling out an online application!

 

What to Expect: 

Once you've submitted your application you'll be contacted to schedule a time to come into the museum for a brief interview and orientation. At the orientation we'll identify your interest areas and set up a schedule.
