If you have a special skill or talent, or if you love the history of the Miami Valley and want to share it with others, Dayton History would love for you to become a part of its volunteer team!
There are currently volunteer opportunities in the following areas:
Learn the history of the 30 buildings and exhibits at Carillon Historical Park and share that history with visitors. Work with school groups, military reunion groups, families and people from around the world. Enjoy interacting with the public? This opportunity is for you!
Photograph Digitization and Labeling Projects
Spend time with our collections at the Dayton History Archive Center, scanning photographs and entering them into a searchable database. Or help with labeling some of the thousands of NCR photographs!
1930s Print Shop
Do you have letterpress skills? Are you interested in learning and preserving a craft that is fading quickly? Become part of the 1930s Print Shop by demonstrating how to operate printing machinery and creating publications for sale. All training is provided.
Marketing and Publicity
Help tell the world about Dayton History by posting our upcoming events on online community calendars and message boards. Work alongside our development department at the Dayton History offices, or, if you have internet access, work in the comfort of your own home!
Turn the Kettering Family Education Center at Carillon Historical Park into a holiday wonderland! Help decorate during the weeks leading up to our annual Ringing in the Holidays event, which will take place on November 22.
To learn more about the available opportunities, please contact Andrea Green, Volunteer Coordinator at 937-293-2841 ext 102.
