In addition to conducting tours of the museum's historic houses, museum teachers are specially trained to lead a variety of youth and school programs.

Assist with special events and outreach programs, work in the Museum Store, provide clerical assistance, help prepare program materials, and assist with publicity efforts.

Community Service Volunteers

For those looking for a short-term volunteer opportunity or service hours, the Homestead may be the perfect fit for you. The primary role of a community service volunteer is to assist with the Homestead's two weekend festivals, with a guarantee of 10 volunteer hours per weekend festival.
